David Luiz’s free kick trick isn’t fooling Frank Lampard

Instagram fun with current and former Chelsea legends. David Luiz continues to be one of the most must-follow footballers on social media. Today he posted a cool video of himself and Willian practicing their free kicks for Nike. For some reason, they had the idea of setting up their pal Nathaniel Chalobah on the goal line to try to score over his head. Nice time with my bros! @willianborges88 ⤴️ @chalobah ⚽️ @nikefootball #freekick A post shared by David Luiz (@davidluiz_4) on Mar 23, 2017 at 8:08am PDT While Willian’s curl was too much, Luiz struck a great strike...

David Luiz unveils his Conte impression while describing the rigors of Chelsea training

Training is hard, very hard. There’s no debating that Chelsea look like a completely different club this season. Something about the way they carry themselves has changed. From their swagger and confidence off the pitch to their consistency and ruthlessness on it, this is a different side than we saw struggle through most of last season. The credit has to go Antonio Conte and his techniques and philosophies, specifically his incredible work ethic. He’s translated all of that to the training ground on a daily basis as David Luiz and Gary Cahill explain in this video posted by the club....

N’Golo Kanté exposes Kanté-facts as alternative facts

He must be fun at parties. If he partied. But of course he doesn’t. Because he’s Kanté. And he’s awesome. Fact. In these halcyon days of fake news and alternative facts, not to mention football rumors, there are fewer and fewer things one can readily accept as true and factual and real. For example, we know that Chelsea are the greatest or that David Luiz is the best. Or that Arsenal will finish fourth. (Or not! HA-HA!) Or that 71 per cent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water and the rest is covered by Kanté. 71% of the earth is covered by water. The...
Good news in the short and long term regarding David Luiz’s knee injury

Good news in the short and long term regarding David Luiz’s knee injury

David “calamity” Luiz has been playing through a nagging knee injury ever since Sergio “not that sort of player” Aguero committed studded assault on it in the dying moments of Chelsea’s 3-1 win at the Etihad back in December. While he hasn’t been forced to miss time, the injury is something that has had to be managed for the last four months and will have to be managed through the run-in to the end of the season. The good news is that David apparently will not need surgery in the summer. And while his excellent performances for Chelsea this season were not rewarded with a...

David Luiz reflects on difficult match against Stoke City and playing to the best of his abilities

Don’t stop believing. Stoke City have long been considered one of the toughest away days for any Premier League side, and while their home record is only the twelfth best in the league this season, that still doesn’t mean that the non-Pulisian Potters ever make it easy for a team to come away from the Britannia with all three points. This is one of the main reasons why Chelsea's victory over Stoke this weekend was celebrated so effusively. "It was a typical Premier League game, we’re happy with the victory but it’s still a long way to win the title. Nobody makes it easy, always it...

David Luiz: 'Still a long way' in title race after win at Stoke City

Antonio Conte reflects on his sides late win vs. Stoke, and has one eye on the trophy with the end of the season in sight. Chelsea defender David Luiz said he was pleased with his sides calmness after they scored a late goal to win 2-1 at Stoke on Saturday. The Premier League leaders had seen an early Willian free kick cancelled out by a Jonathan Walters penalty before half-time. But Gary Cahill pounced on a loose ball to fire home with three minutes remaining, and Luiz told Chelseas official website that the Londoners had come through a difficult...

Agent casts doubts on one-time Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly's future at Napoli

Agent casts doubts on one-time Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly's future at Napoli

During the summer transfer window last year, Chelsea supposedly had identified Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly as the primary target to reinforce the defence. However, Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis did what he could to make a potential switch practically impossible, first by setting ridiculous and ever-increasing transfer fee demands and then managing to convince the defender to sign an extension with the Partenopei last September. (Ed. note: Chelsea instead moved for David Luiz, and that decision has worked out quite well, to say the least.) While Koulibaly ultimately decided...
