David Luiz Back in Chelsea Team After Antonio Conte Froze Him Out

David Luiz Back in Chelsea Team After Antonio Conte Froze Him Out

He refused to expand further, insisting he had attended the press conference to speak about the group rather than individuals.

"David Luiz is in the squad", Conte said. I repeat, it was a tactical decision and every single player has to react well.

"I do not like to speak about a single player". Luiz was majestic for The Blues last season as they won the league with a record 30 wins out of 38 matches.

"I hope at the end of the season to finish with a big beard".

Champions Chelsea are nine points behind Pep Guardiola's City ahead of Saturday's trip to West Bromwich Albion, where Conte's men secured the title in May.

"They are playing very well and it is very hard to think you can catch them, but the other top teams in England have to try to fight until the end".

Jose may have been impressed with his maturity but it is important to see how he will fit in at our club given that we boast the best defensive record in the league. "Now it's right for them to play regularly. He's young but an important Chelsea player".

Amidst all the burning Chelsea problems, the Italian might point his finger at anyone other than himself but should come to terms that he carries great blame for the current situation.

"I read Ruben's interview and he said his path is ideal and to play regularly this season is very important for his development, and then to come back to play with Chelsea with greater maturity". It's the same path as Christensen, who played for two years on loan and now he's playing regularly for Chelsea. Only Michy Batshuayi (ankle), Charly Musonda (knee) and Victor Moses (hamstring) are definitely out of the trip to The Hawthorns, though Conte is optimistic of having Moses back from next week.

He added: "We have to try to fight until the end. It will be very hard for the other teams".

"Football can be unusual".

"It's very hard now to predict who will win the title in this league, but Manchester City are having a very positive path".
