David Luiz insists Chelsea will keep fighting for the Premier League after Atletico Madrid dumped the Blues out of the Champions League.

The Blues suffered a 3-1 loss to Diego Simeone’s side in the second leg of their Champions League last-four clash on Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Jose Mourinho’s men cut Liverpool’s lead to two points at the top of the Premier League after securing a 2-0 victory over the Merseyside outfit at Anfield on Sunday.

And Brazil centre-half Luiz believes Chelsea’s success can still be defined as a success despite their European disappointment.

“This is football,” Luiz is quoted as saying by Daily Mail. “We need to be a man as it is not always possible to win.

“The season we won the Champions League was a s*** season until the end and then we won two titles. It is normal.

“Now, we keep fighting in the league because mathematically we can win. We cannot win automatically, it will be difficult.

“We are a big club and we want to win trophies, but the most important thing is to have a personality.

“You need to fight in many situations. This is sport, this is football. Everyone speaks about results, that’s true.”
