Manchester United lining up January bid for Chelsea's David Luiz - report

Claude Puel hails return of Foxes' internationals ahead of Manchester City clash

Conte and Luiz had a high-profile bust up before the international break that saw the Brazilian axed from the matchday squad entirely for their Premier League clash with Manchester United. The hectic Christmas schedule is the determinant of the team that wins the league in May, and there are no better players to help navigate that schedule than Matic.

"Moses is progressing well - I hope to see him back next week", Conte said at a press briefing today.

"I do not like to speak about a single player".

The football world was shocked when Chelsea agreed to sell Matic to United in the summer for £40m which Chelsea felt was a good price for a player nearing his 30s.

Antonio Conte called for greater communication between Chelsea and England after a "misunderstanding" led to Danny Drinkwater being widely criticised for turning down the chance to participate in friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

"You have to understand there are two different moments".


Though the replacement for Matic at Chelsea, Tiemoue Bakayoko has impressed in spurts, most Chelsea fans would bring back 29 year old Serbian international, Matic back to the Bridge. We have to try to fight until the end. This season, with Christensen, I have another opportunity, another really good opportunity, because Christensen is showing himself to be an important player for us.

"But, for sure, it won't be easy because I think Manchester City were very strong". The first group consists of players who are involved in Saturday games, the second in mid-week games and finally those who are returning from injuries. Every game. As you know very well, in this League, it's very difficult to win every game.

"They have a fantastic team, a great manager, a great strategy - in this transfer market they showed they had a strategy to buy players to improve the team". You have replace him with someone who is going to do the same job! "I think it is the best for them and the club, but if they didn't want to go and play on loan, maybe they would be here [in the Chelsea squad]". During the walk he sometimes goes into a bar to have a celebratory beer whilst taking great trouble not to be recognized.

"He went with the national team and then came back with this problem", Conte said of Batshuayi.

"In this way you can avoid a misunderstanding because about Drinkwater it was a misunderstanding. He's young but an important Chelsea player".
