David Luiz determined to get back for Chelsea's top 4 Spurs showdown

David Luiz is determined to be fit for Chelsea's top four showdown with Tottenham.

The Sun says the Brazilian defender is confident he will be fit for Chelsea's first game after the international break when they are at home to fierce rivals Spurs on April Fool's Day.

Luiz has not played since Chelsea's 4-1 defeat at Watford on February 5 because of a knee problem which has dogged him for much of the season.

He even flew to Spain to see a specialist for further treatment in a bid to play his part in the run-in to the campaign.

Luiz has found it difficult to force his way into the first team this season under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte but is keen to play his part.
