  • David Luiz

Conte's selection gamble paid off against United with academy graduate Andreas Christensen producing a nerveless performance in Chelsea's 1-0 win, intensifying the speculation about Luiz's long-term future at Stamford Bridge. I did this and I think Christensen played a massive game.

Conte meanwhile will be crossing his fingers hoping that his men avoid injury during games with their respective national teams.

Conte displayed his ruthless streak by texting Diego Costa in the summer to tell him he was not in his plans before selling the striker back to Atletico Madrid.

The 30-year-old Brazil worldwide fears for his future at the club and believes his relationship with Costa could be used against him as Luiz tried to act as peacemaker between Conte and the Spain global over the summer.

Saudi Arabian heir tightens his grip on power
The 62-year-old is one of the largest shareholders in Citigroup and also owns stakes in News Corp and Twitter . The Saudi Interior Ministry said early Monday that the crash happened in Saudi Arabia's Asir province.

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. "I have to make the best decision for the team".

"If I see that you are not in good form, it's normal". It's normal. I have to make the best decision for the club, not for a single player. Sometimes I can make mistakes.

According to The Times, the Brazilian believes that.

"No. [checks]. I think that I have a squad".

Furthermore, Conte was asked how Luiz's place in the team had done a total 180.

The report suggests that the former Paris Saint-Germain ace is concerned that his close association with Costa played a big part in his manager's decision, having attempted to play peacemaker between the two men earlier this year. The Blues boss only responded with: "It can change".

The Times say Luiz confronted his manager on Thursday and questioned his tactics.
