Dropping David Luiz was strictly a tactical decision - Chelsea manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has cleared the air about why he dropped defender David Luiz in their 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Conte cast doubt on Luiz's future at Chelsea after omitting him from his matchday squad in favour of Andreas Christensen, who the Italian described as the present and future for Chelsea. Speaking after the match Conte insisted his sole focus was Chelsea on a whole, and that every member of his 26-man squad could experience the same as Luiz.

He said “It's simple, the coach has to make the best decision for the team, and tonight it was to play for Christensen and have Ethan Ampadu on the bench, good players for the present and future. I decided this tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future. It's normal. I have to make the best decision for the club, not for a single player. It was only a tactical decision. It's normal and this can happen to every one of my players. If I see they are not in good form, it's normal. I have to make important decisions. I have a squad with 16 senior players and five young players. I have to make the best decision for the team.”
