Willian does not believe a hamstring injury he suffered against Arsenal is a serious problem, according to Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Conte sent recent signing Ross Barkley on for his debut after Willian was forced to come off after half an hour at the Emirates Stadium, where Chelsea were beaten 2-1 in an action-packed Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

Conte revealed: “I have spoken to the player and he said to me he felt a bit of a problem in his hamstring.

“He doesn’t think it will be a serious injury and we hope this sensation is right.”
