The Brazilian was omitted from the squad last time out when Chelsea saw off Manchester United prior to the global break, however, Conte has confirmed he will be recalled for the clash with the Baggies.

Luiz was omitted from the squad for the goalless draw with Jose Mourinho's United prior to the global break, but the Brazilian is back in contention.

Chelsea continue their Premier League defence on Saturday away at WBA and can be found at 3/5 betting odds to claim important three points.

Conte then revealed that he "doesn't know" if Luiz has a long-term future at Stamford Bridge. When it's a technical decision every player has to react well and accept my decision.

Asked about his relationship with Luiz, Conte said: "I'm here to talk about the team before an important game against West Brom and not about a single player". I don't like that. If you want to try to catch them, you have to win every game.

"Christensen is showing himself to be an important player for us", said the Italian. Last season, both games were very hard for us, at home and away. I'm proud for what we did last season.

His only job in football since hanging up his boots has been with Chelsea, but the 52-year-old wanted to spend more time with his family, so quit his role at Stamford Bridge. "Now it's right for them to play regularly".

"But, for sure, it won't be easy because I think Manchester City were very strong". Ruben, I read his interview. "He played for two years on loan and now he is playing regularly for Chelsea". It's very important for his development, and to come back and play for Chelsea with great maturity. It's the same path as Christensen, who played for two years on loan and now he's playing regularly for Chelsea.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has said Victor Moses should return to action next week after he was sidelined for several weeks by a hamstring injury. "I don't understand why we always have to try (to find) a problem". "It's very hard to predict who will win the title".
