STORY: David Luiz will make his first start since rejoining Chelsea when he deputises for injured captain John Terry against Liverpool in the Premier League on Friday (September 16).

Manager Antonio Conte believes the 29-year-old Brazil defender, who left Chelsea for Paris St Germain in 2014 but returned earlier this month, is ready.

“Tomorrow David Luiz will play for the first time with us and we are confident about this,” Conte told a news conference on Thursday (September 15).

“We expect him to play very well with great attention, we know that David is a good player and we are working to put him in a good condition to give us the best of him,” he added.

Terry damaged ankle ligaments during a 2-2 draw at Swansea City on Sunday (September 11), Chelsea’s first dropped points of the season.

Chelsea can go top ahead of the weekend fixtures with a win at Stamford Bridge.
