David Luiz returned to the Chelsea starting lineup after missing out in the last two games.
Luiz was said to have questioned Conte’s tactics after the 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League, but Antonio Conte has denied a rift with the Brazilian and named him in the starting team that played against Qarabag.
And Conte says the door is not closed on the Brazilian being able to reclaim a regular role.
“I think that every game I have to take the best decision for the team and go game by game,” the Chelsea manager told BT Sport before the game.
“We have to play a lot of games, every three days, it’s normal to have a lot of rotation in my squad, and today I decided this way.”
