Carragher: Luiz will NOT be Chelsea first-choice

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher doesn't expect David Luiz to be a first-choice at Chelsea.

Luiz was back in action for the Blues in defeat to Liverpool.

"It will be Terry and Gary Cahill - it's tried and trusted," Carragher told Sky Sports. "Chelsea are a type of club where the club actually sign players - the manager gets changed so often it's almost like a European model.

"If Antonio Conte had wanted David Luiz he would've got him much earlier.

"He's not a Conte centre-back. He's had out and out defenders at Italy and Juventus - their main job is to defend and Luiz isn't that type of player."
