David Luiz moved to Chelsea during the summer, and he has established himself as one of the best defenders in the league, despite many ridiculing Chelsea for buying him; it could be said that Luiz has put his critics and doubters to shame.

Former Chelsea defender Paul Elliot has hailed Luiz’s impact at Chelsea while also revealing that he’s at the peak of his career.

“Bringing in David Luiz, people thought, ‘you know what, there’s a lot of a mistake in him,’” the former Chelsea defender said at the London Football Awards. “But he has been consistent. Not only has he been consistent, he has matured.

“He is 29-years-old now and that, being a former centre half, is the perfect age for now and the next three years, you are going to see a great consistency for Luiz. He knows now and he is making the right decisions.

“He isn’t taking unnecessary risks, he knows when he should kick it into row Z or when to get it down and play. His concentration has become excellent.”
