Dennis Wise has heaped praise on David Luiz for his “outstanding” performance for Chelsea FC in their clash with Liverpool FC on Saturday.

The Brazilian defender featured for the full 90 minutes as he helped Maurizio Sarri’s men to earn a 1-1 draw from their showdown with Jurgen Klopp’s men in front of their home fans.

David Luiz but in a brilliant display at the back to help keep Liverpool FC at bay, but the defender was powerless to prevent substitute Daniel Sturridge from curling home a brilliant equaliser late on after Eden Hazard had put the Blues ahead in the first half.

And former Chelsea FC star Wise chose to single out David Luiz for special praise after his sparkling display for the Blues against Liverpool FC this weekend.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Wise said: “He did everything he needed, even helping Marcos Alonso to cover Mohamed Salah, and he kept Roberto Firmino quiet too.

“His distribution was outstanding at times, and showed us he can defend as well as pass out from the back. He was outstanding.”

Chelsea FC are currently preparing for a return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they host Videoton at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues will then switch their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their trip to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea FC have made a strong start to the new season and they are currently third in the table and just two points behind joint leaders Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC.
