Chelsea midfielder Drinkwater suffers knock ahead of Kasimpasa debut

Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater could miss his debut in Turkish football on Monday after suffering a freak swimming pool injury.

The midfielder has joined Istanbul club Kasimpasa on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season.

In preparations for Monday afternoon's home game with Sivasspor, he picked up the injury - believed to be a muscle problem - during an official club session at the pool.

It will be a blow for Drinkwater, 30, if he misses the game as he is hoping to prove a point after a rotten few years in English football.
