Conte growing a beard, hoping to grow Chelsea's winning streak as well

Cheap goals: This one chart shows why Manchester City are one of the the best value for money Premier League teams for fans

Conte raised eyebrows by omitting David Luiz from his squad for fourth-placed Chelsea's 1-0 win over Manchester United prior to the global break. The 30 year old Brazilian centre back was dropped by manager, Antonio Conte for the 1-0 victory over United last time out, as shocking reports have emerged about a spectacular disagreement between player and manager.

"Yes, David Luiz is in the squad", Conte said. "[His exclusion] was a technical decision".

"When it's a technical decision, every single player has to react well and to accept my decision".

Conte had a lot of praise for Christensen's form after the last match before the global break, and he had more good things to say today: "It's positive". But both RLC and Tammy Abraham are gaining valuable playing time while away on loan and that's the most important thing for their development at the moment.

'I think I stay here to speak of the team before the game against West Brom, I like to speak about the team not one single player'. "Then to come back and play for Chelsea with greater maturity". He helped me a lot last season, and also this season.

He said, "For sure this is a loss, a big loss for us".

"They are playing very well and it is very hard to think you can catch them, but the other top teams in England have to try to fight until the end".

"I like to speak about the team and the next game that we have to pay great attention to".

"We have to try to fight until the end". But, for sure, it won't be easy.

"For sure, if you want to try and catch them, you have to win every game".

"It's very hard now to predict who will win the title in this league, but Manchester City are having a very positive path".

The 26-year-old Nigeria star hurt his hamstrings at his former club Crystal Palace last month. "We have to remember this and understand that it's very important we keep winning and not drop more points".

Chelsea continue their Premier League defence on Saturday away at WBA and can be found at 3/5 betting odds to claim important three points.
