Chelsea v Liverpool: David Luiz to replace injured John Terry in defence, confirms Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed David Luiz will start at centre-back in place of captain John Terry in their Friday night Premier League clash at home to Liverpool.

Blues captain Terry suffered an ankle injury during the 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday and was ruled out for around ten days.

And Luiz is set make his first appearance for Chelsea since his £34million deadline-day return from Paris Saint-Germain in Terry’s absence.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Kante, Alonso, Matic, Fabregas, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Costa, Begovic, Batshuayi, Pedro, Loftus-Cheek, Moses, Aina.
