Backing his former teammate to come good

Cape Town - Chelsea defender David Luiz says he is happy to be back in action for the Blues and is enjoying his football again under Maurizio Sarri.

During that time, Willian has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.

Luiz was frozen under Antonio Conte last season, which cost him a place in Brazil's squad to the World Cup in Russian Federation. The Blues beat Huddersfield Town, Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Bournemouth to take second position in the standings, behind Liverpool.

The 31-year-old, who was a key figure when Chelsea last won the Premier League title in 2016, went on to claim that Sarri's high success rate in London is due to his attitude towards life and that his philosophy revolves around enjoying every day.

"A lot of people they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never".

UCF and North Carolina are looking at the feasibility of rescheduling for this season, but that remains highly unlikely. The problem is, much of the Carolinas are already saturated from rainfall. "That's good news and bad news", he said.

Manchester City and Liverpool are expected to challenge for the Premier League title this season, and the German midfielder can not wait to watch.

Fabregas could find it hard to force his way into the side with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho also for competition yet he is confident that his style of play will suit Sarri's philosophy.

Willian has been a vital player under Sarri so far, he is expected to be in the squad when they host Cardiff on Saturday in the Premier League. "But it's a good pressure, and I think if you don't feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea. These five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player". Fortunately, we have very strong young players: "Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu. and I'd like to give them the right space".

Guardiola's defending champions Manchester City are favourites to retain their crown in 2018-19 and have looked in excellent form in the opening four matches of the campaign.
