Diego Costa, Jose Mourinho and David Luiz among Antonio Conte's spats

  • Luiz was droppedĀ for Chelsea's Premier League win over Manchester United on Sunday

Arsenal legend Ian Wright can't see Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and David Luiz working together long-term.

David Luiz believes that Antonio Conte is "punishing him" for his friendship with former Chelsea striker Diego Costa, according to reports.

Luiz was not even among the substitutes at Stamford Bridge, where Andreas Christensen was brought into the side.

Chelsea went on to win their fourth Premier League game in a row to go within a point of United in the table, but Luiz's future is now under the microscope.

"It is a tactical decision", the manager told Sky Sports.

"The coach has to make the best decision for the team". I did this and I think Christensen played a massive game. I saw him play against Roma [a 3-0 Champions League defeat] the other night and he didn't look anywhere near it. Another young player. A really good player for the present and the future.

This was not one of them, although the Hammers were just dreadfully flat, short of attacking spark or interplay between their attackers.

"I repeat: I have to put my face to every situation and then sometimes to make important decisions". This mindset has yielded spectacular results when selling players - most notably Ramires, David Luiz and Oscar - but led to more problems when buying.

However, Conte insisted that the decision to go with Christensen was purely tactical, playing down suggestions of a breakdown in the pair's relationship. Maybe in the future I can decide in a different way, or continue in this way. It is a big call because if you take on these players in that dressing room, where David Luiz is a big influence, a big character, you can lose at this club.

"I'd be happy to eat humble pie if I'm wrong - and there's part of me that will be pleased if I am because I've a lot of respect for the guy. But I do the best things for my team".

Conte had been prompted to ditch Luiz following the midweek Champions League loss at Roma.

Yes, reporters were probably right to sniff a bit of blood in the water at Luiz's demotion not to the bench, but to the stands.
