David Luiz has been playing through pain since the horror tackle from Sergio Aguero back in December. Despite that, the Brazilian has been brave for Chelsea, constantly putting top displays, which has left his manager very impressed.

Antonio Conte has hailed him for putting the team ahead of himself, and revealed that he loves that mentality in Luiz.

“There are some who can live with pain more than another,” said the Chelsea manager.

“I can take the pain very well.

“Different people take the pain in different ways but I love the players who show me this behaviour for the team before themselves.”

Luiz has revealed that he still has pain in his knee and is unable to fully train every day.
