Following last week's 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League and subsequent bust up with Antonio Conte in training, Luiz was dropped for Sunday's game against Manchester United.

A recurring theme of Conte's first season at Chelsea was his reluctance to engage in any public spats with rival coaches, but the fiery Italian has made an exception in recent months to bite back at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Antonio Conte took a shocking decision of dropping David Luiz for one of the biggest fixtures yesterday and what surprised everyone is that the Brazilian was not even named on the bench.

"With Luiz you see him in advance of the ball on numerous occasions during every game he plays and consequently, Chelsea suffer defensively. I have to make the best decision for the team". Today, I did this, and Christensen played an incredible game.

"If I see that you are not in good form, it's normal".

But having missed all of Chelsea's preseason to represent his country, Mikel quickly found himself out of Conte's plans, with the Italian eventually neglecting to include him at all when listing his central midfield options in news conferences.

"I have to make important decisions".

We have to be patient with the team and defend in the right way.

"It was only a tactical decision", he insisted.

He said after the United win: "Maybe in the future I can decide a different way or continue in this way".

Last season, Conte also left Costa out of the Chelsea squad for a 3-0 victory over Leicester City on 13 January, amid suggestions the striker had had a training ground row with the boss over his fitness. Sometimes I can make mistakes.

Reports have been claiming that David Luiz has infuriated Conte with his attitude in the past few weeks.

"I think that [Jose and I] shake the hand two times, it's enough".
