Despite being under pressure from Danny Welbeck, Luiz lifted the ball over the Arsenal striker and performed an audacious header back to Courtois.

It was a risky but delightful scene, and it caught the attention of Gunners legend Martin keown, according to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin.

He wrote in his column in the official Chelsea website: “I found myself sitting next to Martin Keown with his Gooner glasses on. In actual fact Martin and I get on perfectly well, we were team-mates at Everton for a few years and we were able to have a discussion about the merits of David Luiz, not exactly the same type of centre-back as Martin.

“He said the Brazilian’s cheeky headed back-pass was impressive and that his passing range was as good as anybody around, but then you don’t need to be a former England defender to be able to spot that.”
