EPL: Not just Hazard – David Luiz names other talented players at Chelsea

Chelsea defender, David Luiz, has said that fellow teammate, Eden Hazard, was not the only talented player at the club, insisting that the Stamford Bridge club have other good players.

Luiz stated this following Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Burnley on Sunday in the Premier League fixture.

Goals from Alvaro Morata, Ross Barkley, Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek ensured victory for the Blues at Turf Moor Stadium.

Luiz believes the likes of Pedro, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Alvaro Morata and others are all talented players not only Hazard.

“We have many talented players here, not just Eden,” Goal quoted Luiz as saying at post match.

“It is every single one. Even when we lost Pedro in the first 10 minutes of the game and in came Ruben [Loftus-Cheek]. We have other talented players also.

“This is a big club and at a big club, you cannot just play with 11 players. You have to have a minimum of 18 or 19 players ready to play and we are happy because we have more than 20. This is why you try to prepare well during pre-season to be ready during the season.

“During the season anything can happen, some injuries, some players not being well, many things can happen. We try to do our best and answer every question. On Thursday against BATE was almost another team playing but with the same mentality, spirit and happiness.

“Everyone has to be ready to play. Alvaro Morata is a great player. He is doing amazing. Sometimes when the strikers don’t score and the pressure comes on them they love that.

“They love to score goals. We just say to him to keep doing what you are doing and the goals will come naturally, like they did today.”
