David Luiz has been superb for Chelsea since joining the Blues from PSG during the summer, and Chelsea have kept four clean sheets in a row in the league with Luiz part of a three-man defence and Jamie Carragher thinks he has every attribute to become a world-class defender, but may be halted in his progression by his own wandering mind.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, the Liverpool legend said: “Why should David Luiz be a world-class defender?”

“The problem he has, which we think is one of his strengths, is stepping out with the ball.

“He’s too casual at times maybe because he doesn’t feel like he has that responsibility.

“Now that he has that responsibility to remain centered, it’s not his job to step out.

“The only problem I see going forward for David Luiz in this set-up is if he becomes bored and he’s not getting involved.

“Then he’ll do something stupid. He does step out and it’s not the instruction from Conte.

“The only problem I see going forward for David Luiz in this set-up is if he becomes bored and he’s not getting involved.

“Then he’ll do something stupid. He does step out and it’s not the instruction from Conte.

“But where’s he’s playing now, not stepping out, just being a defender, he’s been outstanding.” Carragher said.

Despite all the media has said about Luiz’s move to Chelsea, he has been superb and has proved his critics wrong and will continue to do so.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
