David Luiz hasn’t featured since our Champions League win in Qarabag, back in November, and Antonio Conte has confirmed that the Brazilian is in line to play in the FA Cup third round tie against Norwich City on Saturday.

Luiz has been out injured for about a month, and Conte has admitted that he will rotate his side for Saturday’s game, which will give Luiz an opportunity to play.

“When you play every three days, especially after the Christmas period, you have to make many rotations,” said the Italian.

“My idea is to continue like in the past because I trust and believe in my players but, for sure, we want to try to go through to the next round.

“David Luiz is ready and he will be in contention for tomorrow’s game. The only problem we have is Hazard because he had a kick in his calf and he has to try to sort this problem.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
