Want To Play, Raise Your Game, Chelsea Legend Tells David Luiz

Antonio Conte has maintained that David Luiz getting dropped from Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester United was a "tactical decision" even though the defender was left out of the match-day squad altogether.

Conte has won today, but in two or three weeks' time if David Luiz is still sat on that bench, every time they concede a goal, the cameras will flip to David Luiz.

That's according to Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam in the wake of the Brazil worldwide being dropped for Sunday's showdown with Manchester United.

Neither did Conte care how the axing of Luiz might go down with other members of the squad, even though the 30-year-old is one of the biggest characters of his dressing-room.

But, having told an television interviewer after the United game that he didn't know if the defender had a future at Chelsea, when he faced the written press, he only told Luiz he wouldn't be granted an immediate recall.

"It was only a tactical decision".

"The coach has to make the best decision for the team and the best decision for the team was to play with Christensen", Conte said.

"I must take the best decision for the club, not for a single player".

High wind warning for NYC through Monday morning

He's just spent 90 minutes tucked inside Andreas Christensen's back pocket.

It's been a shit few days for David Luiz.

We have to be patient with the team and defend in the right way. Maybe in the future I can decide in a different way, or continue in this way. It's normal. I repeat: I have to put my face in every situation, and then to sometimes make important decisions.

"Sometimes I can make mistakes".

Luiz watched the United win from the stands alongside Kenedy, who also reportedly incurred Conte's wrath after being caught yawning during the team meeting that followed the Roma loss.

"I think that I have a squad".

"I'd be happy to eat humble pie if I'm wrong - and there's part of me that will be pleased if I am because I've a lot of respect for the guy".
