Conte: Dropping Luiz Was Tactical

A report claims that David Luiz thinks his close association with Diego Costa is behind Antonio Conte's decision to drop him from the squad to face Manchester United.

The Times say Conte left Luiz out after a disagreement between the pair on Friday.

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

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 fantastic. "He's lackadaisical as a defender but I think he is a very good midfield player and I have said this on numerous occasions". It's normal. This can happen to every one of my players, if I see that they are not in good form'.

Andreas Christensen took his place in his three-man defence alongside Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill, with 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu making the bench.

In an interview with BuzzFeed , actor Anthony Rapp said he attended a party at Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, when he was 14. London police said they had begun investigating an alleged 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey .

"I repeat: I have to put my face to every situation and then sometimes to make important decisions".

That is part of the renewal Conte seems to be rolling-out in his side right now: he told us again after United about the plummeting average age of the team.

Speaking after the match, Conte insisted the decision was tactical and had been vindicated by Christensen's performance. I was very happy for this.

"I decided this way tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future or I can continue the same way". On Saturday, David Luiz was back but only for a light fitness session. It is a big call because if you take on these players in that dressing room, where David Luiz is a big influence, a big character, you can lose at this club.

Conte had been prompted to ditch Luiz following the midweek Champions League loss at Roma. Sometimes I can make mistakes.
