- David Luiz is set to miss more than three matches for Chelsea after breaking his wrist
- The defender reportedly injured himself in the the goalless draw with Arsenal last weekend
- He was shown a red card for a tackle on Saed Kolasinac and will automatically miss three matches
Chelsea defender David Luiz is set to miss more than three matches for his side after he reportedly broke his wrist during the Sunday's goalless draw with Arsenal.
According to The Mirror, the Brazilian is expected to face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
He is expected to miss the next three matches through suspension after receiving a red card for a bad tackle on left-back Sead Kolasinac late in the game.
Luiz was clattered into the advertising board as the referee blew the whistle for half-time and suffered a fracture.
However, the problem apparently does not require surgery and he is still training in a splint.
Antonio Conte is expected to turn to youngster Andreas Christensen for longer than he first intended after the news of Luiz's ban.
