Sarri's entertaining style has transformed Chelsea into surprise contenders

Backing his former teammate to come good

"I think his philosophy to live life is already great because he wants to enjoy every day, he wants to be happy and he wanted to take this opportunity to start one more chapter in his life", Luiz told the club's official website.

'It's very hard. The gap last season was 30 points so I think to go above 30 points in one season is very, very hard.

Darke speaks of the "turbulent environment" that Sarri walked into when taking the Chelsea job, and how despite the clubs incredible turnover of managers under Roman Abramovich, the Italian seems unfazed by the prospect of returning Chelsea to the top of the English game.

Luiz was consistently snubbed by former manager Antonio Conte towards the end of last season but has won his place back in Sarri's starting line up.

Conte won the Premier League title and FA Cup in his two years in charge but it was clear that he was looking for a way out. "He is a great coach".

The 59-year-old's preferred playing style, which sees his team play short, snappy passes, certainly suits the Brazilian.


He has started in all four games Chelsea have played so far this season in the English Premier League.

Chelsea star is ready to commit his future to the club as he wants a five-year contract at the Stamford Bridge, according to report.

Chelsea endured a hard campaign in 2017-18 and their dismal performance only helped them finish 5th in the league table, which made them unqualified to participate in the UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea hero Claude Makelele admits he misses his time at Stamford Bridge.

Luiz was frozen under Antonio Conte last season, which cost him a place in Brazil's squad to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Luiz will be aiming to build on the clean sheet that Chelsea managed to keep against Bournemouth as they prepare for more challenges in the coming weeks.
