David Luiz: Chelsea will 'be worse' if they fail to retain Champions League

Chelsea defender David Luiz believes that they must retain the Champions League this season or risk 'getting worse'.

The Blues escaped with a 3-2 victory against Shahktar Donetsk courtesy of a last minute winner from Nigerian forward Victor Moses at Stamford Bridge last night.

Speaking after the match, Luiz told reporters: "If we win the Champions League again this season, we will be better. Otherwise this Chelsea team are going to get worse.

"Results show that this is a different team now. We are playing differently but we are still going to show what we can do."

Luiz believes the season rests on their ability to retain the trophy, despite an excellent start in the Premier League: "Last season our aim was the trophy and we did it. If we do it again, then we'll look at what we did differently."

Roberto Di Matteo's side are top of Group E with seven points, level with Shakhtar and one point ahead of Juventus in third.
