30-year-old David Luiz returned to Chelsea last summer from Paris Saint-Germain and he has been an influential figure throughout the campaign.
Luiz revealed he hoped for great things when he returned to Chelsea last summer.
“You always hope for the best and hope for great things,” Luiz responds, when asked if his first season back at the club has exceeded expectations.
“When I decided to come back I knew I would work with a fantastic coach, at a fantastic club, in a fantastic city and with many fantastic players.
“You hope and have ambition to do something big but it depends on your work throughout the season. I think we are working very hard and trying to improve the team every day, which is why we’re fighting for the title.
“It’s nice to have the pressure, it means we are fighting for something big but we must keep our feet on the ground and try to do our best.”
