Make Or Break Time For Luiz At West Brom

Make Or Break Time For Luiz At West Brom

This afternoon we`ll get an idea of whether David Luiz has a future at Chelsea Football Club or not. Antonio Conte has already said in his pre-match presser that the Brazilian is back in the match day squad following his exclusion in the last Premier League game against Manchester United.

Evening Standard reporter, Simon Johnson, believes there is a good possibility that Luiz will actually start the game.

With Christensen having been away on international duty, playing two World Cup playoff games, he may be rested for the trip to West Brom. Luiz, on the other hand has had two weeks at Cobham under the watchful eye of Conte. It`s believed he`s got his head down, worked hard and restored some of his manager's faith in him.

With West Brom`s renowned strong-arm tactics likely to play a part in a physical game, Luiz may not be a bad shout for central centre-half position. Luiz`s experience against such sides could be invaluable

This season has seen a drop off in Luiz`s form, but he`s not the only one. If Chelsea can steer clear of injuries with the season getting into full swing, there`s every chance they can put a run of wins together. Luiz will be a crucial part of that process as will the other slow starters this term.

A visit to the Hawthorns is never going to be a walk in the park, and after this game Chelsea travel to Azerbaijan to take on Qarabag in a now crucial Champions League group game. After that it`s a trip to face LIverpool before the run of fixtures heading to Christmas look, on paper, less competitive. KTBFFH.
