Luiz was fouled by Sanchez before red, claims Conte

  |   Football / ISL

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte believes David Luiz was fouled by Alexis Sanchez just before the challenge that saw the defender sent off in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal.

It meant Chelsea had a player sent off for the third consecutive match against Arsenal, having had Victor Moses removed in the FA Cup final and Pedro dismissed in the Community Shield.

Conte told Sky Sports : "David Luiz, you know very well that I don't like to comment about the referee. I didn't do this it in the past and I don't do it in the present.

"The only thing I can tell is you need to see what happened before the tackle."

Asked if perhaps there was a foul on Luiz before he fouled Kolasinac, Conte answered: "Yeah."
