    David Luiz refuses to blame Sergio Aguero for horror challenge

    Chelsea defender David Luiz has played down the seriousness of Manchester City star Sergio Aguero’s horror tackle on him.

    David Luiz has gone from PlayStation to perfect, says Neville

    The ex-England defender once famously suggested the Brazilian played like he was being controlled by a 10-year-old but has been much more impressed since his return to Chelsea.

    Gary Neville once infamously described David Luiz as defending like he was being controlled by a 10-year-old on a PlayStation – but now believes he fits “perfectly” into Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system at Chelsea.

    That’s the view of Chelsea legend Pat Nevin after witnessing Chelsea’s 5-0 demolition of Everton on Saturday.

    The victory was Chelsea’s fifth Premier League win in a row and saw them extend their run without conceding a […]

    Goals from Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose, and a double from Toni Kroos had Germany 4-0 up after 20 minutes, leaving the Arsenal star apologetic at full time.
