Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: 'David Luiz working hard to return'

  • Antonio Conte Manager of Chelsea gives his team instructions during The Emirates FA Cup Semi Final match between Chelsea and Southampton at Wembley Stadium

The Brazilian centre-back has been out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season and he is determined to leave if Antonio Conte stays at the club.

Antonio Conte has revealed that Gary Cahill will feature in his plans until the end of the season to give the England worldwide some extra exposure and the best possible chance of making Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad.

Conte's future remains unclear, with Chelsea still in with an outside shot of finishing in the top-four and lifting the FA Cup, and if he does end up sticking around, it will spell the end of Luiz's second spell at the club.

The Blues made it three wins in a row in the Premier League on Saturday evening when they claimed a 1-0 victory at Swansea City to move to within two points of Spurs. "I'm sure they are used to it, but we have done our job, and all we can do is try and win every single game from now until the end of the season and see where that takes us".

But the French midfielder insists he will be fully fit when the World Cup kicks off this summer in Russian Federation.

"I think the players and I, we are trying to do our best".

The Blues have failed to replicate the kind of performances that saw them lift the Premier League title last term.

Conte added: "We're talking about a player with great experience".

Despite Chelsea winning 1-0 against the Swans, Conte believes his side should be burying more chances, as he criticises a number of glorious chances squandered by his players during the match. Christensen is playing an important season, his first for Chelsea in this pressure, and now I think it's right to give an opportunity to Gary to play more.

Seri has been one of the best all-round midfielders in French football since joining Nice from Pacos de Ferreira in 2015 while he's also a regular with the Ivory Coast national team.
