Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had to provide injury updates on Tiemoue Bakayoko and David Luiz, who was substituted early in the second half due to a problem on his calf.

“After the first half the doctor told me David Luiz had a pain in his calf, and the same for Bakayoko in his groin. – Conte told Chelsea’s official website speaking after the game against AS Roma – It was a good decision to try to protect him. In this moment it’s very important to protect the players”.

Conte underlined the absences of N’Golo Kante, Danny Drinkwater and Victor Moses“We must realise we had three important players out and this gives us problems, but I am not looking for excuses now.”

“I tried an extra defender to protect more the team, but in terms of the style and system I want to see, it must always be the same”.
