Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed they will not appeal David Luiz’s red card against Arsenal.
The Brazil centre-back was sent off for a crude lunge on Sead Kolasinac during the closing stages of the 0-0 Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Conte had suggested an appeal could be lodged, having felt David Luiz was fouled by Alexis Sanchez in the build-up to the incident.
However, speaking ahead of Wednesday’s EFL Cup clash with Nottingham Forest, he confirmed no further action would be taken.
“No, I think the situation was very clear,” he told a news conference when asked if they would be appealing.
“It was a fall before the tackle but now it’s important to move on and to look at the next game.”
