Just what we need – David Luiz has just sent this defiant message to Tottenham, talks about Alonso injury and more

David Luiz has acknowledged the threat posed by Tottenham in the Premier League title race, but has pointed out that Chelsea “are top of the table for a reason”.

The Blues have dominated the battle for domestic supremacy in England, with a 13-match winning streak seeing them surge clear at the summit.

What looked to be a procession at one stage has, however, become a little nervy for the Blues, with their lead trimmed to just four points.

Luiz is aware that Spurs are now the form side in the division, but remains confident that Antonio Conte’s side are still favourites to take the crown.

“Tottenham are playing very well but also we are top of the table for a reason,” he told Chelsea’s official website.

“We still have to play a lot of football, so we need to look forward and play the next games.”

Marcos Alonso was unable to take part in the contest due to feeling unwell, but Luiz insists his absence on the left cannot be blamed for destabilising the team.

He added: “He felt a bit sick so that is why we had to change but it didn’t affect the game because Marcos did not play.

“We lost because we did not play very well and it was not the Chelsea like before and sometimes this happens. Manchester United played better than us and they deserved to win.”

Chelsea are back in action on Saturday in an FA Cup semi-final clash with Tottenham, before returning to Premier League competition on April 25 at home to Southampton.

  1. We should not relax and wait for Tottenham bcoz they are doing very good and its us who stopped them from winning the league last season and if we are not careful it maybe the oposit of that so let’s keep fighting until the last day otherwise we are behind u guys keep it up.

  2. Despite we lost three points to red devils does not mean we cannot beat spurs,I know spurs play well, their defence,midfield and attackers are very good; but we need to focus and play like we did before during Jose mourinho…
    It’s very tough game and I believe we can do it better guys.
