Chelsea boss Conte: I know Drinkwater can improve a lot

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is convinced Danny Drinkwater is playing his way to peak form.

Drinkwater was on the mark for Chelsea's 5-0 rout of Stoke City on Saturday.

“I've had the opportunity only today to put N'Golo and Drinkwater together like Leicester's time because Danny started the season with this injury," Conte said.

“He knew during the transfer window that he would probably change team and it's not simple to have a good training session at that time. And now he has to improve his form.

“I know he can improve a lot to reach his peak form and then I have the possibility to rotate with these four midfielders. Today was very positive to see again the couple of players that won the league with Leicester."
