'Serious problem' with Luiz's knee - Conte

'Serious problem' with Luiz's knee - Conte

CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte has revealed that David Luiz's injury is worse than feared. Luiz was reintegrated into the team, but he has not seen any action since November 22, in Champions League win at Qarabag FK.

"David has a big inflammation in his knee and we have tried to sort this situation with the doctor". It's important to assess the situation day by day and try to try to sort this problem.

"I don't know when he will be able to come back with us, but with the medical department we are trying to sort this situation".

Since arriving back at Chelsea, Luiz has certainly bolstered his reputation, and was brilliant in their title winning season last term, but a falling out with Antonio Conte and of course the form of Andreas Christensen has made it very hard for him to get back into the side, and he's made Conte very aware of his feelings as the duo looked to get their working relationship back on track.

Pocking up points on their travels is becoming more of a problem, in fact, as they have taken just one from a possible 12 against Manchester United, Arsenal, Leicester City and Watford. "He trained with us two days ago, and also today".

Southampton have won just one of their last eight Premier League matches and were beaten 4-1 by Leicester City on Wednesday, but Conte warned that this will make them more unsafe opponents at Stamford Bridge. "Because, for me, Southampton are a really good team".

Alvaro Morata continues to be Chelsea's main goal threat, with nine in 15 games this season, although Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willian and Pedro were all on target last time out for the Blues, and the mercurial Eden Hazard has also bagged five goals this season. They're a good team. This team are very strong.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have given Musonda the option to go out on loan this winter, with the youngster set to make a decision on his future, per Nizaar Kinsella at Goal.

"The players are very fast".

He added: "Until now, my players - every player - have all played a lot of games". Tadic. They have a lot of good players. We must pay great attention. My expectation is to suffer.
