“I think David Luiz is a centre-back, he’s played a lot of games in that position,” Conte said while speaking to the club’s official website.

“I know sometimes he’s played as a central midfielder but in my mind the idea is to utilise him in the right position which, for me, is centre-back." 

Conte has used a 4-4-2 formation for all of Chelsea’s matches this term. 

He may likely now field a 3-man defence line drawn from the pool of David Luiz joining Kurt Zouma, John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic – who are all capable of playing at centre-back. - Online Sources
