David Luiz discusses Maurizio Sarri’s tactics
Brazilian defender David Luiz has given an interesting interview to Chelsea’s website before the Man United game.
There are obvious dark clouds over the Blues right now following recent away matches in the league.
After losing 4-0 away at Bournemouth, Man City beat Chelsea 6-0 last weekend.
That’s sparked plenty of conversation about Maurizio Sarri’s ongoing future with the Pensioners.
Will the Italian survive the season?

According to Luiz, the Blues squad are firmly behind Sarri. The centre-half has revealed what’s been happening in closed-door meetings:
We have had many meetings already asking if someone doesn’t believe. They can say. Nobody said anything. It’s because everyone believes (in it).
We lost against maybe the best team in the world at the moment in Manchester City. They were better than us from the beginning to the end.
We lost a few matches because it is part of the process. The teams that are at the top of the table now are ones with managers who have been there for more than three years.
There is a big difference when you have already understood everything, it is much easier to play football. I think we are in the right way to still improve to become a fantastic team.
