Ex-Chelsea striker questions Conte over Luiz gamble

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has questioned their swoop for David Luiz.

Sutton suggests that Antonio Conte has risked tactical stability with a move for the 29-year-old centre-back.

He told BBC Radio 5 live: "I am not sure about David Luiz, Antonio Conte has not put a foot wrong so can we question his judgement? Where will he play?

"He is a maverick type, I am not so sure about him defensively. Conte has put himself under pressure with this one.

"There are players out there who would be more consistent that Luiz, I would rather go for steady - it is a gamble. He is a talent, can Conte get the best out of him?"
