It’s been said Chelsea are too dependent on Eden Hazard this season but David Luis believes Chelsea’s 4-0 thrashing of Burnley without Hazard is proof the Blues aren’t a one-man team.
The Blues have failed to win at Turf Moor for the last two seasons.
Hazard missed the win at Burnley after picking up an injury following the rough treatment he received in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United last weekend.
Hazard has been impressive this season and he’s Chelsea’s highest goal scorer.
“We have many talented players here, not just Eden,” Luiz told reporters.
“It is every single one. Even when we lost Pedro in the first 10 minutes of the game and in came Ruben [Loftus-Cheek]. We have other talented players also.
“This is a big club and at a big club, you cannot just play with 11 players. You have to have a minimum of 18 or 19 players ready to play and we are happy because we have more than 20. This is why you try to prepare well during pre-season to be ready during the season.
“During the season anything can happen, some injuries, some players not being well, many things can happen. We try to do our best and answer every question. Thursday [against BATE] was almost another team playing but with the same mentality, spirit and happiness.
“Everyone has to be ready to play. Alvaro [Morata] is a great player. He is doing amazing. Sometimes when the strikers don’t score and the pressure comes on them they love that.
“They love to score goals. We just say to him to keep doing what you are doing and the goals will come naturally, like they did today.”
