Following last weekend's win over Manchester City, there were a few injury concerns in the Chelsea squad. Nemanja Matić had missed out due to a muscular injury, while the trio of Diego Costa, Pedro, and David Luiz seemed to suffer knocks during the game itself. David Luiz especially looked in pain after Sergio Aguero's assault on both of his knees (the right with the legs and the left by landing into it).
Adding to the concerns around the defender was his absence from training videos posted by Chelsea TV. Obviously these videos aren't definitive sources of team news, but last week, Matić was similarly absent and ended up missing the match. While Conte did not directly address David Luiz's situation in his pre-match press conference, David himself posted a video on Instagram, which confirmed that he was training separately (usual procedure for injury rehab) but also that he just might be ready for Sunday. This would corroborate a throwaway line at the end of an interview in the Evening Standard that the anchor of the defense would good to go against West Brom.
Meanwhile, Conte did provide an update regarding Matić and the rest of the squad's availability.
Conte reports John Terry is still recovering from his injury and Oscar is sick. He expects the rest to be available for Sunday. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) December 9, 2016
Conte says Nemanja Matic has trained since Tuesday and is fit. He will decide his team after tomorrow's training. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) December 9, 2016
So other than Terry, which we'd known and Oscar, who's sick (again), the rest should be available. Hurray!
