Conte confirms David Luiz's injury

Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte has confirmed David Luiz's injury and will be unavailable for tonight selection against Swansea after picking up a knee injury.

David Luiz was dropped against Manchester United earlier this month and was given the nod against Qarabag in the Champions League but was reduced to the bench role during Chelsea 4-0 win over West Brom.

The defender did not also feature in Chelsea's draw against Liverpool on Saturday as he was an unused substitute. Due to his injury, he won't be able to play tonight's game against Swansea.

Conte confirmed that Luiz will join Charly Musonda, Michy Batshuayi and Kenedy in missing the Swansea game but was unable to give any indication as to how long the centre-back will be out.

Conte reports David Luiz (knee problem) and Charly Musonda are out, and Michy Batshuayi and Kenedy are trying 'to come back to 100 per cent'.
