Chelsea have received a much needed boost on the injury front as edge closer and closer to the end of the season.

As per The Standard, fan favourite David Luiz has made a return to training in a bid to make a return before this campaign is over. The centre-back will also be hoping to be available for Brazil’s squad selection for the World Cup in June.

When speaking to reports on Friday, Antonio Conte is quoted by The Standard revealing Luiz’s status as the 31-year-old recovers from a long-term series of injuries.

“For sure, now, he’s having training sessions and is improving a lot. He had this problem in his knee.

“He’s working. Working very hard. He’s aiming to come back before the final of the season.”

David Luiz Scores At Anfield
Antonio Conte had David Luiz firmly in his plans last season but that has all changed in recent times.

In Luiz’s absence, Andreas Christensen has done a good job replacing the man that was pivotal to the Blues’ title winning campaign last season.

While Conte may not see Luiz in his plans even if he does return soon, the Italian’s future being in question could see him return to the Chelsea line-up under a new manager.
