Stoke City tried to intimidate Chelsea with an aggressive style during Chelsea’s 2-1 victory at the bet365 Stadium but Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed he has no problem with Stoke’s tactics.
“It’s okay! This is football, you have contact. It’s part of the game. Everybody knows when you come to Stoke it’s always difficult,” Luiz told Standard Sport.
“Physically they are very tough. Sometimes they decide to play this way because they’re strong.
“We just need to be intelligent [when this happens], to be clever, not to let this kind of game get in your mind. That’s what we did against Stoke and we played well.”
