Meanwhile, Antonio Conte, who’s been accused of shunning David Luiz unreasonably, claims not to have seen this (he was facing away from the bench at the time and giving some instructions), but if it means winning, he wants nothing more than for it to happen many more times.
“I didn’t see it. I tried to use this moment to give some advice to my players.
”For sure, tonight, I want to watch this celebration on TV, and I hope to see this celebration many times over the rest of the season. I don’t know if there is a special relationship. They are team-mates,” Antonio Conte;
Chelsea have now won five in a row and Olivier Giroud has been right in the middle of it, scoring goals, inspiring comebacks, and fostering good team spirit.
Meanwhile, Luiz started just one Premier League fixture for the Blues in 2018 and is being linked with a number of European clubs including, Monaco and Napoli.
The defender was a key player for Conte last season, playing over 40 games as the Blues won the Premier League title.
The 31-year-old was dropped earlier in the year following Chelsea’s 4-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League and Conte has lost faith in the centre-back.
