He'll be in the team soon

He'll be in the team soon”

The Blues face the prospect of playing 20 games in 75 days, with an FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich City next up.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says defender David Luiz is fully fit and available for selection despite his absence from the Blues' starting line-up.

Against Norwich, he could be ready to start on the bench and then to play a part of the game. But we knew we were playing against a good opponent, maybe the worst opponent we could have played in this moment. He is a young player but with great potentiality.

The Brazil worldwide started on the bench in the 0-0 draw against Leicester City on Saturday and wasn't called upon following an injury to Gary Cahill in the 33rd minute.

Barkley would be an asset to start the game given the fact Conte believes so many of his players are exhausted.

"It is not important what time is the substitution".

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, and at the end with 10-men we pressed them, but for 70 minutes of the game they were the better team", Courtois said.

'I think it's a problem not only for us - I saw many players exhausted, ' he said.

"Speaking to Sky Sports News, Gale said: "[Antonio] Conte wants players in, he wants bodies through the door, that's for sure, because he gave a wishlist in and didn't get it last time around.

"If Batshuayi wants to leave in order to prove himself for a place in Belgium's squad at the World Cup, then that would happen, as long as Chelsea can get someone in".

While the performance and result against Leicester City on Saturday did not meet the high expectations set by Conte and the players, the Italian moved to assure supporters that everyone is giving their all and any decisions he makes are for the good of the team. "In this busy period I tried to make rotation and to give a bit of rest to the players that need to rest but also to work with the players that are not working a lot on the physical aspect because, don't forget, if you don't play you lose your potentiality and your strength".
