DAVID LUIZ has confirmed he was carrying an injury into Chelsea’s clash with West Brom.
The Blues secured a 1-0 win in a tightly-fought contest at Stamford Bridge yesterday.
Diego Costa bagged the only goal of the game to stretch Chelsea’s winning streak to nine in a row.
But Antonio Conte’s charismatic centre-back has confirmed it was debated whether he’d feature against the Baggies.
“I felt a little, it’s normal, I had the injury a few days ago,” Luiz told ESPN Brazil.
“I wanted to play – I talked to the manager.
“He also said that he wanted me to play, and it was good. I survived for one more [game].”
When quizzed about his return to London from Paris St-Germain in the summer, Luiz added: “I’m in a happy moment.
“Happy to have come home, happy to be here.
“But as I told you, you have to keep working.
“Football is very dynamic, football changes from day to night.”
