Axed David Luiz watches Chelsea win from stands

"Manchester United is a really good team".

Luiz paid the price for some sloppy performances as Blues boss Conte left him out of the squad at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is digging up his own grave by dropping star names such as David Luiz in such high-profile fixtures.

"Conte is in charge, it doesn't matter who you are", Adam told Sky Sports. "He's lackadaisical as a defender but I think he is a very good midfield player and I have said this on numerous occasions".

Chelsea defender Andres Christensen has today revealed that he had figured out that he would be handed a start versus Manchester United long before yesterday's matchup.

Chelsea ran out 1-0 winners and Christensen further enhanced his credentials.

"I have to put my face in every situation and then to sometimes make important decisions".

Lebanese Prime Minister resigns over fear for life
The government have managed to avoid the country being embroiled in the worst of the conflict taking place in neighbouring Syria. The prime minister's resignation will raise tensions in the country and has thrown its political future into uncertainty.

Given the personalities involved, it was surprising that we had to wait until January of last season before Conte's patience with Costa snapped.

Conte was asked what made him drop Luiz and the Italian simply replied, "It was only a tactical decision".

Priority targets such as Romelu Lukaku and Alex Sandro were not secured primarily because Chelsea refused to meet the financial demands required to make the deals happen, and those decisions rest with the club's de facto chief executive and transfer negotiator Granovskaia.

"I'd be happy to eat humble pie if I'm wrong - and there's part of me that will be pleased if I am because I've a lot of respect for the guy".

There had been speculation that the Brazilian had been punished for his reaction to getting subbed off during the dismal 3-0 defeat to Roma but he dismissed there was anything more to it than form.

And Adam reckons Luiz will be sold if he continues to pose a problem for Conte. "Sometimes, I can make mistakes or sometimes I can do the best thing".

"No. [checks]. I think that I have a squad".
