Diego Costa, Jose Mourinho and David Luiz among Antonio Conte's spats

David Luiz heads into the November global break on the naughty step after being dropped against Manchester United, while technical director Michael Emenalo made the surprise decision to step down amid significant tensions between Conte and the Chelsea hierarchy - though the relationship between the Nigerian and Conte did not reach the stage of those below.

Conte insisted after the match that leaving out Luiz was purely a "tactical decision", but reports suggest the two men clashed in the wake of Chelsea's humiliating 3-0 away defeat against Roma in the Champions League.

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

Conte will not attempt to placate Abramovich, he will simply make the decisions he feels are best for the club and stand by them - whether they are judged good or bad.

He also said: 'Christensen is the present and the future for Chelsea'.

The more people that are immunized, the harder it is for flu to circulate in the community, the department stated in its release. Flu season is coming-that time of year when if you get sick, at best, you have aches, pains, and a few days of misery.

Luiz was believed to have been given a couple of days off but will be back at Cobham for training on Wednesday, having once again been left out of the Brazil squad.

"That's some kind of achievement already, so after that he could claim himself as a player that is ready to replace one of the three, I still didn't have that many games in one team so after this season it might be my time but I don't know".

"I have to put my face in every situation and then to sometimes make important decisions". If I see they are not in good form, it's normal.

But The Guardian report that Conte will permit Luiz to return to full training with the rest of the first team squad who are not involved in internationals on Wednesday afternoon. I was very happy for this.

Conte's position has been under scrutiny after a mixed start to his second season in charge but the Italian said: 'To have this type of performance and to see this spirit, I'm pleased'. I saw him play against Roma [a 3-0 Champions League defeat] the other night and he didn't look anywhere near it. It is a big call because if you take on these players in that dressing room, where David Luiz is a big influence, a big character, you can lose at this club.
