Conte backs Christensen to replace David Luiz for key Chelsea triple-header

Conte backs Christensen to replace David Luiz for key Chelsea triple-header”

In his first season at the helm, Conte guided Chelsea to Premier League glory - spearheaded by the in-form Hazard. Similar tackles against Chelsea players from Eric Dier and Gana Gueye just this season only resulted in yellow cards, for example. Pedro saw red in the Community Shield loss to the Gunners before Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were both dismissed in the opening weekend defeat to Burnley. "For sure, it's odd".

"For sure it is odd but in all situations we have to try to improve; in the tactical situation, the physical situation and also we must try to improve in this situation, and also we hope to be more lucky in the future", he explains. Also, you have to be more lucky in the future.

"But you do wonder if he is a luxury you can not afford in games like the ones against Liverpool and Chelsea". What I was able to contribute didn't make much of a difference as we didn't win this match, but I'm happy with my 45 minutes and I hope I'll continue to perform. "I have had to study a new formation with 10 players on the field because when it happens with this regularity you must be anxious". "Sometimes [this season] the opponents deserved a red card but, instead, they carry on playing with 11 men".

Manchester United and Manchester City have set the pace in the Premier League, but Chelsea are every bit as good as their most serious competitors.

It was Christensen rather than £29million signing Antonio Rudiger who was brought on to shore up the Blues' defence after David Luiz's dismissal against Arsenal and with five appearances already to his name this season, the 21-year-old has Conte's trust.

It is, therefore, important that Chelsea's players rediscover the disciplinary line that should not be crossed.
