Courtois Rues ‘Leader’ Luiz Suspension
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes that David Luiz’s three match suspension is a big blow for the team. The Brazilian was red carded 87 minutes into Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal after a heavy tackle on Gunners left-back Sead Kolasinac.
Luiz will now serve a three match suspension, which includes a Premier League game against Manchester City. Luiz will be available for next week’s Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid next week.
“We play Forest in midweek so it’s one less game in the Premier League, but the manager may have rotated David anyway. It’s a blow because David has been playing really well since he arrived last season.
"He’s a great player and a great leader but we have confidence in the other guys as well. He will be missed but we have good players on the bench."
