David Luiz has taken to social media to wish Andreas Christensen a happy birthday after the Chelsea FC defender turned 22 on Tuesday.

The Danish defender has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances in the Chelsea FC team since returning from a two-year loan spell with Borussia Monchengladbach.

The 22-year-old has started 20 Premier League games for Antonio Conte’s men and has been regularly filling in for David Luiz during his absence due to form and fitness issues.

And the Brazilian defender was quick to dedicate an Instagram post to Christensen after he celebrated his birthday on Tuesday.

David Luiz posted the picture above of Christensen at Chelsea FC’s Cobham training ground on Tuesday on his personal Instagram story.

Christensen will be hoping to start for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime with a trip to Southampton in the Premier League.

The west London side are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham after their disappointing 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

Chelsea FC will still try and win the FA Cup this season and will take on Southampton in the semi-finals later this month.
