Chelsea ease injury fears after defender sparks concern

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with David Luiz since he made the switch back to Chelsea…

A widely ridiculed move in the Tavern when it happened, David Luiz has silenced all of his doubters since coming back to the Premier League – with the Brazilian arguably the best centre-half in England at present.

His performances have not come easily, though, with there being several question marks over the fitness of the Brazilian since he rejoined the club. Forced into wearing strapping on his knee over the last few weeks, Luiz has been moving gingerly at points – and that has left the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern concerned.

These fears were worsened over the weekend, with a social media post by Luiz seemingly hinting that the Brazilian was requiring painkiller injections after Chelsea’s clash with Burnley. See that post below…

However, it would appear as though there is nothing to fear for the Blues in the Tavern, with the Telegraph reporting that Chelsea have played down Luiz’s injury – passing off the social media post as a regular part of his treatment. Whilst the Blues did note that he has an injury problem, the Telegraph seem to suggest that it isn’t particularly serious.

This has come as a huge boost to the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, many of whom have been seriously impressed with Luiz this season. Since moving to the middle of a 3 man defence, Luiz has impressed – and the question marks over his defending have been vastly reduced.

Often sheltered by Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta, Luiz has less responsibility but still plays a vitally important role – and it seems to be absolutely perfect for him.
