Watch: Chelsea signing posts training update ahead of Tottenham clash
David Luiz was in high spirits for his final training session ahead of Chelsea's trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night
David Luiz didn’t appear to be contending with any nerves ahead of Chelsea’s crunch London derby at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.
The Brazil defender has been in excellent form in the 2016-17 season so far after Luiz sealed a return to Chelsea in a £32m deal from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.
Luiz has established a superb understanding with Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill as part of Conte’s back three after the Chelsea boss switched to a 3-4-3 formation in their last 13 games.
Chelsea have kept 10 clean sheets in their last 13 games in the Premier League ahead of their short trip to White Hart Lane as the Blues look to equal Arsenal’s record of 14 successive top-flight wins.
Luiz appeared to be in high spirits ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Tottenham after the centre-half posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“Let’s training 😉👊🏻”
Chelsea are five points clear of second-placed Liverpool in the title race.
