Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has hinted that David Luiz will get another chance at the first team and has nearly fully recovered from the knee injury which has sidelined him for several weeks.
Speaking in his press conference on Friday, Conte revealed that the Brazilian could be back in contention for the London derby against Arsenal on January 3, or the FA Cup clash against Norwich three days later.
"All the players are available – the same players in the last game are available," said the Italian (via Metro).
"I think that tomorrow we have a very difficult game against Stoke City as you remember well last season in the same period we suffered a lot to beat them at home," he continued.
"I remember very well the game. We must pay great attention. We must go game by game. It’s normal when you have to play every two days it’s normal to make rotations. I have to give the players a bit of rest."
