Chelsea defender David Luiz: We need Bakayoko to adapt quickly

Chelsea defender David Luiz has no doubts over the expected impact of Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Blues fans are anxiously waiting for the former Monaco midfielder's debut.

Luiz told SFR Sport: "Baka is a special person, a little one who has great humility. I say small because he is 22 years old when I am 30 but he's a monster.

"I hope he can do the same thing as in France. He was great in both the league and the Champions League. I hope he will adapt quickly to the English championship.

"It's a little bit different in intensity. He will see that there are monsters like him physically. But he's a great guy, who's always working well."
