Conte Issues David Luiz Injury Update
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that David Luiz was omitted from the squad for Wednesday’s game against Swansea due to injury.
The Brazilian has fallen out of favour in recent weeks, with Andreas Christiansen coming into the team in his place.
Luiz was not on the bench for the Blues’ 1-0 win over Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. But Blues boss Conte revealed that the player is injured.
“He had the liquid in his knee and we have to assess his recovery, the time. I hope to not lose him for a lot of time, because we have to play every three days and I need all my players,” he told his post match press conference.
