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

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has rejected reports linking him with AC Milan.

The defender was poor in last week's 3-0 Champions League hammering at Roma but no one saw what was coming.

As a result, it appears Luiz's Chelsea career is in doubt.

Conte then met with the entire Chelsea squad during which he lambasted their performance.

Prior to being omitted from the 18-man squad on Sunday, Luiz was forced to train away from the first team and instead worked with the club's youth squad.

Tellingly, Conte led Chelsea to the title last May.

Conte was asked what made him drop Luiz and the Italian simply replied, "It was only a tactical decision".

"It's normal, this can happen to everyone of my players". I think it's normal that, from now until the end, every game, every day, someone puts my future in discussion.

In 2005, he dropped the "P" altogether, and began performing under the name Diddy, which he used up until his latest name change. In 1999 Sean returned to his youthful nickname - Puffy, inspired by his childhood habit of "huffing and puffing" when angry.

"I have to make important decisions". Today, I did this, and Christensen played an wonderful game. I was very happy for this. Very simple. The coach has to make the best decision for the team and tonight the best decision for the team was to play with Christensen and to have, on the bench, Ampadu.

"You're not just falling out with one player, you're falling out with four, five, six - those six could be worth £200million".

Antonio Conte has consistently claimed he is "different" to his Chelsea predecessors as questions have been raised over his future during recent weeks, but, until Sunday, it was hard to pinpoint exactly what he meant.

"Lukaku is also a fantastic player, and a great friend, but I hope he can not score against us". "Sometimes, I can make mistakes or sometimes I can do the best thing".
