David Luiz has been ever-present at the back for Chelsea this season, and he has been very solid as well.
The Brazilian who was being labelled as an erratic defender, has proven critics wrong since his move back to Chelsea during the summer, with consistent and solid displays at the back.
Robbie Savage has put Luiz’s form down to N’Golo Kante. Savage believes Kante has been a major instrument in the 29-year-old’s form.
“It is no coincidence that, at Chelsea, David Luiz has suddenly morphed back into a world class centre half with Kante winning tackles in front of him,” Savage told the Mirror. “Nemanja Matic has found his mojo again too.”
He also believes that Leicester’s struggles this season is all down to his absence.
He said: “There is no doubt Leicester have missed N’Golo Kante.
“As a defensive screen, he gave Wes Morgan and Robert Huth more protection than a bodyguard.
“Now they have gone back to looking like… well, Morgan and Huth. And he made Danny Drinkwater look like an international midfielder.”
