Goes From Bad To Worse For David Luiz After Terrible News

Luiz's replacement, Denmark global Andreas Christensen, impressed in the centre of defence, with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku struggling to get the better of him. "I have to make the best decision for the team".

"I decided this tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future".

"If I see that you are not in good form, it's normal".

When questioned specifically on the case of David Luiz, he said: "It's only a tactical decision".

Chelsea now take a break for worldwide football and play West Brom next in the Premier League on Saturday, November 18.

Conte's position has been under scrutiny after a mixed start to his second season in charge but the Italian said: 'To have this type of performance and to see this spirit, I'm pleased'.

"I have to make important decisions. Sometimes I can do the best things for my team".

"I wouldn't say they were exactly flamboyant past year but I don't think they're as dominant in games". I was very happy for this.

Conte had been unhappy with Luiz's reaction to being substituted in the 3-3 home draw with Roma and gave him a training ground ticking off a few days later.

Andreas Christensen took his place in his three-man defence alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill, with 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu making the bench.

Nor did Mourinho - he was booted out soon afterwards, despite having won the Premier League title the season before.

Wilkins, who also represented Manchester United during his playing career, believes Luiz would be better employed as a midfielder but feels he is too much of a liability at the back.

Asked by television reporters whether or not Luiz still has a future at Chelsea, head coach Conte replied: "I don't know".
