Antonio Conte says David Luiz will start Liverpool clash and issues update on Chelsea duo

The Blues re-signed the Brazilian defender on transfer deadline day for £30m, two years after selling him to Paris St-Germain for £50m.

With John Terry out injured, Conte will hand Luiz a start at Stamford Bridge for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

Conte said: “When new players arrive it is normal that they need the time to adapt to a new concept and idea of football.

“But tomorrow we needed to play David Luiz – he worked a lot in these days in defensive situations with the ball.
