After David Luiz took us by surprise with that stunning effort against Liverpool, I had a little debate with my colleague if it was a spontaneous decision to catch Mignolet unawares or probably a training ground routine, and many people had that debate too.

Gary Cahill has confirmed that the goal was just a moment of magic from David Luiz and that it wasn’t planned.

The Chelsea stand-in captain said: “Between the two it was smart thinking.

“He [David Luiz] used his initiative, saw an opportunity to take it quickly and smashed it in. That was just sharp, bright play. Sometimes you have times in a game when you can make a decision and catch a team unaware, that’s exactly what it was.”

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.
