Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admitted he was scared by Sergio Aguero’s insane tackle on David Luiz and is not sure he can select him for West Brom game, as the Brazilian suffered a little injury after the terrible challenge.
“I have to check [today] on his recovery because this tackle was very bad,” Conte said.
“It will be very important for him and for me to decide whether he’s able to play on Sunday. After I saw the replays, that’s when I saw this was very dangerous for David Luiz. I watched the images and I was afraid. I was scared.”
If Luiz is able to play it will assist Conte in maintaining an enviable record. So far the Italian manager has managed to keep his squad largely free of injuries, and as a result Chelsea have made fewer team changes than any other Premier League club.
“Traumatic problems are very difficult to avoid, but to avoid muscular problems is important, to have a method, a philosophy, in training sessions and to work with the players together with the medical staff and try and find the best solution.”
