Chelsea star confirms injury ahead of Sunderland clash: He’s held talks with Antonio Conte

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.”
