Antonio Conte: Reveals David Luiz's position

Antonio Conte has suggested Chelsea could be playing with a back three after he said David Luiz will slot in at centre-back for the Blues.

With John Terry and Gary Cahill unlikely to be dropped, David Luiz could play alongside Conte’s first-choice duo in Chelsea’s away strip to Swansea on Sunday.

“I think David Luiz is a centre-back, he’s played a lot of games in that position,” Conte told the club’s official website.

“I know sometimes he’s played as a central midfielder but in my mind the idea is to utilise him in the right position which, for me, is centre-back.

“He’s played with Chelsea previously and he will bring a good personality.”

David Luiz has recently stated he would be willing to play anywhere for Chelsea after making a sensational return from PSG.
