Chelsea defender David Luiz recalled to squad for West Bromwich Albion clash

Share

A surprising star of Chelsea's Premier League title winning side, a fully fit Luiz was left out of the squad for United's visit to London before the worldwide break following suggestions of an argument with Antonio Conte relating to a 3-0 hammering in Rome a few days earlier.

"Chelsea is one of the biggest football clubs in the world".

Even though the 3-5-2 formation worked against Jose Mourinho's team, Conte may want us to have more freedom against The Baggies.

Conte went for Danish centre-half Andreas Christensen with 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu on the bench ahead of Luiz.

The Chelsea manager said the Brazilian will be considered for selection having been confined to the stands for the club's previous fixture, a victory over Manchester United.

There were reports of a falling out between Luiz and Conte, but Italian coach revealed the defender has returned to the squad. "He's young but an important Chelsea player".

Every manager should have full control of the locker room but Antonio Conte has apparently taken it to a whole different level with his military-like approach and his players are beginning to crack under relentless pressure.

Antonio Conte was sporting some facial furniture at Friday's pre-match news conference, causing a stir among the reporters in attendance. Conte is now found at 10/1 betting odds to become the next Italy permanent boss. Goretzka could add more steel to the central midfield position, where the Blues have looked a little thin this season after the departure of Nemanja Matic.

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has insisted that the mood in the camp is still good despite the team coming in for criticism at times this season.

Icardi has been in devastating form for Inter Milan this season.

Conte would be forced to grudgingly admit that he also made a mistake with authorising Ruben Loftus-Cheek's loan to Crystal Palace, seeing that the England midfielder went on to impress and earn the worldwide call-up thanks to his imperial displays in the first part of the Premier League season.

He will also miss Saturday's visit to West Bromwich Albion, but could be available for selection in a UEFA Champions League at Qarabag on Wednesday.
