Chelsea captain John Terry will miss the trip to Hull on Saturday after failing to recover in time from an ankle injury.
Terry has missed the last two league games after picking up the problem in the draw at Swansea.
And now Chelsea boss Antonio Conte confirmed the former England captain is likely not to feature until after the international break.
“John Terry is not available. He hasn’t recovered from his injury to his ankle,” Conte said.
“I think we will likely see him after the international break.”
