Chelsea host Bournemouth, in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before welcoming Leicester City to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday, our final game before Christmas.
According to defender David Luiz, it will be an enjoyable Christmas for Chelsea if the Blues win both games.
“It’s always a big week,” said David Luiz, according to Chelsea’s official website.
“We have another competition on Wednesday and then we play Leicester so we have to take it step by step, it’s going to be difficult.
“The Bournemouth game is important, it’s another competition and another trophy so we’re going to try to win it.
“It’s going to be difficult, we have to understand that because it’s never easy to play in England and play in these competitions so we have to prepare well, rest well and try to win. If we do that then we can enjoy Christmas.”
Luiz also talked about Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Brighton on Sunday.
“It was a big win and good for us to get another three points,” the Brazilian added.
“Normally when you don’t kill the game in the Premier League the other team believes until the end. Brighton were trying to play more long balls and get fouls to put the ball in the box. I think they only had one shot on goal so it wasn’t a difficult game mentally, it was more about the spirit.”
