Conte insisted it was a tactical issue and plans to recall Luiz for the trip to West Brom.
“He is in the squad. It was a tactical decision and every single player has to react well and accept the decision,” he said.
“It is normal this. I don’t like to speak about a single player.”
However, there is no certainty Luiz will be in the starting line-up.
Conte added: “It is positive, this season with (Andreas) Christensen I have another good opportunity.
“He is showing to be a good player for us. He is playing with a great maturity and I hope he continues to grow in this way.”
