Chelsea news David Luiz

Christensen's impact this season has certainly surprised Conte but the boss believes the Denmark international can become a Chelsea great.

The tabloid is peddling the story that David Luiz could soon swap Stamford Bridge for the Emirates Stadium. The Bianconeri attempted to sign Luiz in the summer as well, following the departure of Leonardo Bonucci to AC Milan.

Manchester United No1 David de Gea was given the nod in goal. I think he has the right characteristics to play for this club for many years, to become an important player for this team, for this club.

Two years later, he was on the move again, returning to Chelsea in a £35m move, helping Antonio Conte to win the title in his first season in the Premier League.

He explained: "Coming up against Arsenal, he was so quick". Here, Mauricio Pellegrino's side proved to be incredibly compact and difficult to break down. He had his eyes on everyone and when he speaks no one messes about or plays with a ball.

The young midfielder seemed to defy the collective slump, however, scoring four times in the last three games to end up in double figures for the season, just one behind the club's two joint scorers with 10 in 33 starts.

With wing-back Marcos Alonso suspended after accumulating five yellow cards, Brazilian Kenedy is set to get a rare first-team start on the left flank.

One player who has struggled for regular minutes under Conte is Michy Batshuayi.

"I gave him that service though because I felt I owed that to him after what he did for me and how he helped me growing up".

Bournemouth will be hoping to book their place in the semi-final with a win tomorrow. Having his presence there was enough.

So, do you want to stay, Antonio?

"The big managers and when I look in world football, he is probably the biggest, they make the big decisions", he added as he was asked about the decision to substitute him in the Man City game. Not only with words, but with facts.

Yet Conte is worth the trouble for Chelsea.

So, it may be an imperfect marriage, but if Chelsea harbour any aspirations of wrestling back the Premier League crown from Manchester City next season, Conte simply must remain.
