David Luiz will be absent from the Blues line up on Saturday
Friday, September 29, 2017
The Brazil international featured in the midweek win over Atletico Madrid but will complete a three-match domestic suspension following his red card against Arsenal.
The defender also has a broken wrist but the Blues have adequate cover with youngster Andreas Christensen likely to step into the defence.
The Danish centre-back has impressed when he has featured so far, following his return from a two-year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, and Conte hinted he was impressed with what he had seen so far.
“For sure it’s a big loss,” Conte said in Luiz’s absence.
“Andreas Christensen is playing well and showing he is a really good player.
“I’m happy with his performances.”
