Chelsea will be away to West Ham on Saturday afternoon, and David Luiz still won’t feature in that game as he’s yet to recover from his knee injury.

Speaking to the press ahead of tomorrow’s game, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte confirmed David Luiz won’t feature in Saturday’s game due to injury.

When asked to reveal when the Brazilian will be back, Conte said: “I don’t know the right time. In this case I think the doctor can speak about Luiz’s situation and be more precise, more accurate.”

Rumours have been linking the Brazilian with a possible move to Real Madrid and Conte was asked in his press conference.

The Chelsea boss said: “I think now this is not the right moment to speak about this. Now there is a lot of games before the transfer window. Now I think is not the right moment to speak about this. Now this is not important.”
