Chelsea defender David Luiz is still struggling with knee inflammation and will miss Saturday's match against West Ham.
The Brazilian international hasn't featured in a Premier League match since being dropped for the 1-0 win over Manchester United in early November, with Andreas Christensen having started of late and Antonio Rudiger beginning to see more minutes. Luiz started last month's victory over Qarabag in the Champions League but hasn't featured since due the knee injury, and while he might not be missed this weekend, manager Antonio Conte was unable to provide a timeline on the return of the center-back: "I don’t know the right time of a return for David Luiz. The doctor would be more accurate for that as he can be more precise." Meanwhile, midfielder Danny Drinkwater will also miss out due to illness. Dec 8 - 4:27 PM
