Conte: Dropping Luiz Was Tactical

Conte: Dropping Luiz Was Tactical

Abramovich had been a driving force behind the decision to re-sign Luiz last summer and regards the Brazilian as a world-class defender, but that did not influence Conte's decision.

Wilkins, who also represented Manchester United during his playing career, believes Luiz would be better employed as a midfielder but feels he is too much of a liability at the back.

Conte's position has been under scrutiny after a mixed start to his second season in charge but the Italian said: 'To have this type of performance and to see this spirit, I'm pleased'. "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".

"[It was] only a tactical decision, I repeat, only a tactical decision", he told reporters after the match.

"It's only a tactical decision, only a tactical decision, only a tactical decision", he explained. Until, that is you realise Conte is somewhat prone to answering many questions with a quiet "err, I don't know", as he searches for the English to give a reasoned response.

That's normal. I must take the best decision for the club, not for a single player.

"Christensen came in yesterday and played very, very well indeed in a massive game".

"It's normal, this can happen to everyone of my players".

Arsene Wenger speaks on Manchester City's desire of signing Alexis Sanchez
This match is of huge importance to City, considering Manchester United will face Chelsea after this. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists there's no problems with the morale of Alexis Sanchez.

Speaking of Conte's situation at the club, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has claimed that Conte's handling of David Luiz could see Conte losing his job as the Brazilian is a "big influence" in the dressing room.

He's now out of the picture, but Luiz regularly stepped in to defend his close friend and acted as a peacemaker, which the centre-back thinks Conte is now punishing him for.

"Manchester United is a really good team".
