David Luiz has been left out of Chelsea squad to face Manchester United at 4.30pm today, despite the Brazilian defender regularly trained with the squad this week.

And behind this decision there’s just a ‘tactical reason’, Conte confirmed speaking ahead of the clash: “Tactical decision,  there’s Christensen in a good form and we also have Ampadu, who is a really good player in a great form. The club likes to bring in young players. No disagreement, no argument”.
