David Luiz dedicated Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Leicester City to his Brazilian team-mates Oscar and Willian.

The £32m summer signing helped Antonio Conte’s side ease to a second successive Premier League victory thanks to goals from Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Victor Moses.

Chelsea are in fifth place in the Premier League table and three points behind leaders Manchester City after their emphatic win against the reigning champions.

Willian’s mother died last week after she tragically lost her two-and-a-half year battle with cancer, while Oscar flew back to Brazil due to a family illness.

And the Chelsea summer signing was quick to send an Instagram message to Willian and Oscar after a tough week for his compatriots.

Luiz posted the above photo and wrote the following caption:

“Hard work! Amazing 3 points! This win was for my friends @willianborges88 and @oscar_emboaba ! Praying for u guys! #W22 #O8”

Chelsea are in fifth place in the Premier League table after securing victories over Hull City and Leicester City.
