Conte hopeful over David Luiz's 'serious' knee injury

Conte said defender David Luiz's knee injury is "serious" and added that the player would be assessed on a day-to-day basis with no definite timeline for a return to action.

But now Luiz is being forced to miss out with a knee injury, with his last performance coming against Qarabag in the Champions League on November 22.

Blues boss Conte said on Friday that the Brazilian is still struggling with a knee problem and continues to be assessed by the club's medical staff.

"I think we can call the doctor and organise a conference with the doctor for him to explain the medical situation of all my players".

"I will try to solve the situation".

"I have to be realistic, we have to face this situation with these players. He is strong physically, he is a technical player and I see a great future for him".

For his part, President Trump sent out a cordial tweet to Manigault Newman thanking her for her service. Manigault Newman was also expected to be at the White House on Thursday, Huckabee Sanders said.

"I think every player is frustrated when they don't play, especially when injured". We must be very, very, very happy whether they play or not play.

Conte is not expecting to have any other selection issues, however, with everyone else at his disposal, including Alvaro Morata after his recovery from a back problem. "No worries about injuries".

"He trained with us two days ago and today". Of course I want to play every game, but only 11 can start. "He has this pain in his back but he's in contention for tomorrow's game".

This has led to frustration from the former PSG man, who is reported to have asked to speak to Coach Antonio Conte. "Drogba brought history to this club and he was a wonderful player and striker".

"I saw a lot of positive things, but one negative was to concede at the end and we must improve in this because it is important to keep clean sheets, for the goalkeeper and the team".
