Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Wenger has hailed Antonio Conte’s tactical adjustment and believes Luiz has brought stability to the Italian’s back line.

Wenger said of Chelsea‘s form: “They have addressed well their problems. You have to give credit to Conte.

“They bought Luiz who stabilised their defensive record and they have been the most consistent until now.”

Chelsea are nine points clear of Arsenal at the top of the table ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Stoke, which could extend to 12 as the Gunners face Crystal Palace the day after.
