Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has expressed his frustration at being unable to rotate his squad after David Luiz was forced off injured during Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Roma in the Champions League.

The Chelsea squad is thin at the moment and Conte is bemoaning the fact that he has to play the same set of players week in, week out.

He told BT Sport: “We suffered possession and it wasn’t easy in the first half, despite scoring two goals. The change of the system wasn’t good, but when you are in a difficult situation you have to change and sometimes to improvise.

“When we changed in the second half the situation was changing. David Luiz had a little problem in his calf and in this moment I can’t risk my players. We are playing always the same players.

“It’s difficult to risk losing him or other players for many times.”
