The Chelsea defender is now set to come face-to-face with his club boss Antonio Conte earlier than expected following their fallout.
Conte played down reports of a rift, attempting to explain his decision.
"It's simple. The coach has to make the best decision for the team, and tonight it was to play for Christensen and have Ethan Ampadu on the bench, good players for the present and future," he said in his post-match presser via Sky Sports.

The Italian gaffer added: "I decided this tonight, maybe I can decide a different way in the future. It's normal. I have to make the best decision for the club, not for a single player.
"It was only a tactical decision. It's normal and this can happen to every one of my players. If I see they are not in good form, it's normal.
"I have to make important decisions. I have a squad with 16 senior players and five young players. I have to make the best decision for the team.

As a result, it appears Luiz's Chelsea career is in doubt.
When asked about his future, Conte said: "You talk about the future but every day you talk about mine. From now until the end, every day my future is discussed."
From bad to worse.
