Defender David Luiz says that Chelsea beat ‘the best team in Europe’ after registering a 2-0 victory over Manchester City in the Premier League.
Chelsea defender David Luiz has acknowledged that Chelsea ‘had to suffer’ before beating Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Luiz – who netted Chelsea’s second – was full of praise for his side’s performance, claiming that the West Londoners had defeated ‘the best team in Europe’ to leave Man City behind Liverpool in the standings.
The Brazilian told BT Sport: “It was a great game. They have great players and are playing very well. We had to suffer but then we took our chance to score.
“It went well, our plan. We have had some bad results but tried to improve. All the team did great. We keep fighting but keep our feet on the ground.”
Chelsea now sit six points adrift of City in the top-flight table.
