Chelsea captain Gary Cahill is not expected to be sidelined for long despite having to come off 33 minutes into Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Leicester.

The England centre-back returned to the side after missing the midweek Carabao Cup draw with Arsenal, but limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury and was replaced by Andreas Christensen.

“Cahill’s was a muscular problem, but not a serious problem,” Conte said.

“I don’t know the time he needs to recover, but it is not serious.”
