Antonio Conte discusses three injury blows and David Luiz return

West Brom's Tony Pulis dilemma unlikely to get easier after Chelsea visit

Conte and Luiz's relationship is reported to have been strained since September, though came to a head after the humiliating 3-0 defeat away to Roma in the Champions League.

There have been numerous reports of tension between Antonio Conte and David Luiz, but the manager still disputes that idea, and maintains that his decision was about tactics on the pitch, not office politics away from the pitch.

And he was visibly annoyed by the questions before saying: "He is in the squad". It was a tactical decision and every single player has to react well and accept the decision. It is normal this.

He added that,"Last season's game at West Brom was "a fantastic moment" of which I was proud, but now I look to the present and expects a tough game".

"I like to speak about the team and the next game". This is the most important thing.

Luiz had started three consecutive league games for Chelsea before being dropped against United.

Reports in Spain earlier this month suggested Luiz was eyeing a move to Barcelona, while the Daily Express has now boldly claimed that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is keeping an eye on the situation with a view to taking the player to Old Trafford.

It is understood that he has been left extremely unhappy following his bust-up with Conte and is frustrated that the club's hierarchy have not backed him.

Andreas Christensen filled in for the player brought back to Stamford Bridge from Paris Saint-Germain on summer transfer window deadline day 2016, and Conte hailed the replacement's performance as incredible.
