David Luiz “Loves” Spurs “Monsters”
Chelsea defender David Luiz has professed his admiration for Tottenham ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final between the teams at Wembley. The Premier League’s top two teams face off for a place in the final this Saturday and the Brazilian has showered his opponents with praise.
“For me they are an amazing team with an amazing coach in Maurico Pochettino. They are the best physical team in the League. All 11 players are monsters. I love that team,” Luiz told the Evening Standard.
“It will be a difficult game for us. We need to be ready to play against one of the best sides in this League. But it was always going to be hard when you reach a semi-final.
"Will we have to be monsters too? Yes. Chelsea also have some monsters and play like a monster like N’Golo Kante. We have different kind of monsters. It will be a fantastic game, both clubs are in amazing shape. It will be a top-quality match to watch and you have to play top quality to win."
Luiz was voted into the PFA Team of 2016-17, alongside clubmate Gary Cahill, with Spurs full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose either side of him.
