Chelsea defender fumed at Conte after his substitution

Chelsea defender David Luiz fumed at Antonio Conte during the 3-3 draw against Roma in the Champions League when he was substituted in the second half at the Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Luiz appeared to have picked a knock during the game and that could have been Conte’s reason for substituting the Brazil international.

The 30-year-old had already gestured angrily when he realised that he was the one going to be replaced moments before. Then there were more words aimed in Conte’s direction as he walked off.

Michy Batshuayi did something similar on Saturday when he was withdrawn in the second half in the defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Seems things are not going well as it ought to be in the Chelsea dressing room and also there are some speculations that Conte is also not in good terms with the board.

Up next for the Blues is the Premier League game against Watford at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
