Chelsea boss Antonio Conte intends to hand starts to Victor Moses and David Luiz tonight against Manchester United.

He will place faith in the pair, who were ignored and sold respectively by Mourinho.

Conte said: “I think that Victor Moses is playing very well. Not only now, but at the start of the season. I asked my club to have a look at him, because I wanted to assess him with my own eyes. And he’s a very good guy.

“I’m pleased to have him in our squad. He’s a fantastic player and a fantastic man as well, and this is important for me.

“For David Luiz, coming back to Chelsea, this is a great challenge but he’s started very well. With great concentration and focus, with a great will to show why he’s decided to come back to wear this shirt, and to prove it was the right choice.

“In his career he’s won a lot and played with good teams. He’s very good, with a good technique. When you have David Luiz you can play from the back. My idea of football, I love this: to start to play from the back.

“For me, he’s also a good defender. We are working a lot with him but also the other defenders, to stay always focused in every single moment of the game. But I’m pleased that David Luiz came back to Chelsea.”
