According to The Times, Brazil international David Luiz fears he is getting the cold shoulder from his manager because of the way he backed his former club teammate during his dispute with the Blues' head coach.

The Brazilian defender was dropped by Conte for the London side's game against Manchester United on the weekend after he reportedly clashed with the Italian tactician over the tactics he used against Serie A outfit Roma, a game they lost 3-0, in the UEFA Champions League last week.

The report stated that the former Italy manager also had words with Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill on the night, but it was only Luiz who felt his wrath come the game against the Red Devils.

Sources at the reigning Premier League champions have states that Luiz's axing has nothing to do with the way he stood up to Conte over his treatment of Costa, and more to do with his performances of late.
