Chelsea defender David Luiz will miss games against Nottingham Forest, Stoke and Manchester City after he was sent off for a tackle on Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac on Sunday.
Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are two defenders Chelsea boss Antonio Conte can call upon to replace the suspended David Luiz in Chelsea’s next three domestic fixtures.
Conte revealed after the goalless draw against Arsenal on Sunday that Christensen will replace the suspended Luiz.
“Christensen is a very young player but I think he is a good player and I trust him,” Conte said.
“Now he has the possibility to play and now he has to prepare very well to play.”
