Chelsea Can't Relax, Says David Luiz
Chelsea defender David Luiz insists there is still some work for Chelsea to do to seal the Premier League title. The Blues have opened up a commanding ten point lead at the summit following a late win against Stoke City on Saturday.
But the Brazilian says that Chelsea cannot get ahead of themselves and start to relax. He told the official Chelsea website, “It was a typical Premier League game, we’re happy with the victory but it’s still a long way to win the title.
“Nobody makes it easy, always it is difficult to play here. They are a strong and physical team. We are happy with the game - it is always difficult but we played a good game, kept calm and had the opportunity to score the second goal. We had to believe. It was so difficult but it did so we are happy.”
Luiz is satisfied with his own form, having flourished in Antonio Conte’s back 3, “As a defender they don’t talk about the good things you do, they talk about the mistakes, so I am trying to play the best football I can to help my team.
“Sometimes you have to give them more security, defend to get a positive result. It’s important to understand my role in the team [but] it’s not just me, it’s Diego, Hazard, everybody. Everybody understands what they need to do.”
