David Luiz fears Conte is punishing him for Costa friendship

  • Chelsea boss Antonio Conte sent a strong message to the players

David Luiz had been a crucial player for the Italian boss since returning to Stamford Bridge from Paris Saint-Germain in the final days of the 2016 summer transfer window.

David Luiz believes that Antonio Conte is "punishing him" for his friendship with former Chelsea striker Diego Costa, according to reports.

Chelsea, beaten 3-0 by Roma in their midweek Champions League fixture, produced an impressive performance against United yesterday. Luiz's Brazilian teammate Kenedy was subsequently left out of the squad to face United after being caught yawning during the meeting.

On Luiz's future, Conte added: "I don't know". On Saturday, David Luiz was back but only for a light fitness session.

Following the game, Conte denied any falling out with Luiz and hailed the impact made by Christiansen, who has made 12 appearances this campaign after returning from two seasons on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach.

"And the best decision for the team was to play with Andreas Christensen and to have on the bench Ethan Ampadu, another young player".

NYPD Building Case Against Harvey Weinstein
But Boyce said detectives were working collaboratively with the district attorney's office on this case. Later that same month, Weinstein showed up uninvited in the lobby of her apartment building.

"If I see that you are not in good form, it's normal". It's normal. I repeat: I have to put my face in every situation, and then to sometimes make important decisions. Today, I did this, and Christensen played an fantastic game.

"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".

Having recently claimed Luiz was the club's best defender, Conte said that "can change" and was adamant the call was "only a tactical decision".

He said after the United win: "Maybe in the future I can decide a different way or continue in this way".

Priority targets such as Romelu Lukaku and Alex Sandro were not secured primarily because Chelsea refused to meet the financial demands required to make the deals happen, and those decisions rest with the club's de facto chief executive and transfer negotiator Granovskaia.
