Diego Costa, Jose Mourinho and David Luiz among Antonio Conte's spats

Conte also praised the contribution of Andreas Christensen. Another young player. A really good player for the present and the future.

But, having told an television interviewer after the United game that he didn't know if the defender had a future at Chelsea, when he faced the written press, he only told Luiz he wouldn't be granted an immediate recall.

Chelsea now head into the global break on the back of their win over Jose Mourinho's men and Christensen has key World Cup qualifying action on the agenda with Denmark.

The Brazil defender was banished to the stands on Sunday, after questioning Conte's tactics in a team meeting after the 3-0 loss to Roma on Tuesday.

The dropping of Luiz created a real buzz: no injury; entirely tactical; had he and Antonio Conte had a falling out?

Conte was asked what made him drop Luiz and the Italian simply replied, "It was only a tactical decision".

The Blues looked back to their best following their harrowing 3-0 defeat at the hands of AS Roma in the Champions League last Tuesday, with the Premier League champions equally as impressive in both attack and defence. "I was very happy for this", Conte said in the press conference following the win over United. Maybe in the future I can decide in a different way, or continue in this way. It's normal. This can happen to every one of my players, if I see they are not in good form. Sometimes I can make mistakes.

Antonio Conte is an uncompromising man, and in his 16 months as Chelsea head coach the Italian has shown on numerous occasions he is prepared to fight to protect what he sees as his club's interests, even if it ends up making him a few enemies along the way.

Various reports have since emerged detailing Luiz how reacted to being dropped, with the Times saying he feels like he's been unfairly singled out.
