Luiz was axed for Chelsea's win over Manchester United on Sunday after confronting Antonio Conte in training.

On numerous occasions, Conte has called the Brazilian a "very important" player, yet here he was dropped, not even given a seat on the bench and entirely frozen out for the Blues' biggest game of the season at home versus Manchester United.

The Blues looked back to their best following their harrowing 3-0 defeat at the hands of AS Roma in the Champions League last Tuesday, with the Premier League champions equally as impressive in both attack and defence.

Conte will not attempt to placate Abramovich, he will simply make the decisions he feels are best for the club and stand by them - whether they are judged good or bad. Another young player, a really good player for the present and the future.

"[It was] only a tactical decision, I repeat, only a tactical decision", he told reporters after the match.

"I decided this tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future".

Conte informed Costa via text at the end of last season that he was no longer wanted at the club, which is said to have left certain squad members - including Luiz - unhappy. I was very happy for this.

"Chelsea have been in touch a few times and sometimes Paulo Ferreira comes and talks to me and show me some video clips of what I'm doing wrong and what I'm doing right and asks me how it's going on and off the pitch".

It was the latter comment that finally drew a response from Conte, who said Mourinho should think more about United and less about Chelsea. "Sometimes I can do the best things for my team". "I try to do this".

"With Luiz you see him in advance of the ball on numerous occasions during every game he plays and consequently, Chelsea suffer defensively". "We played with great energy, passion and enthusiasm".
