- David Luiz makes a huge come back under Chelsea’s new Boss, Maurizio Sarri.
- Luiz was relegated to the bench under former coach Antonio Conte, due to a confrontation.
David Luiz was barely used in Conte’s last season at Chelsea before he sustained a long-term injury. He made just 4 appearances for the Blues in 2018.
Luiz’ relegation to the bench was believed to have been prompted by a reported bust-up with Conte in October.
However, Luiz has been a regular for Chelsea since Sarri’s arrival. He played in pre-season and was also handed a start in the Blues’ Premier League opener away to Huddersfield Town.

During Conte’s reign at Chelsea, Luiz’ primary role was in the middle of the back three, as he apparently didn’t trust Luiz in the wider positions.
However, Sarri has insisted that David Luiz offers more than that and will perform well. He said:
“I disagree that he can only play as one of three central defenders,’ Sarri said after Chelsea’s win over Huddersfield.”
“If you are a good defender you can play in a defensive line of three and you can also play in a four.”
“I don’t know about what happened in the past but now he has a good chance.”
‘”We only have to carry on like we are doing now with him.”
