David Luiz claims he has nothing to prove at Chelsea despite being dropped from the side recently.

The Brazil international was omitted from the Premier League matchday squad against Fulham at the weekend.

"It was just one game," Luiz said. "Sometimes when other players go out of the team, people don't say anything.

"I don't need to prove anything. Everyone knows who David Luiz is, I want to play football and enjoy myself on the pitch so when I have an opportunity to play, I want to enjoy just that.

"I am just one player in the team. Sometimes the manager can put me in, sometimes not. It's his choice."

"We don't have to prove anything," he added. "We just have to show that we want to play. "

"Everyone had an opportunity to play and show our football and that's it.

"This is a big club and we have many, many good players. If Chelsea just had 11 players we could win nothing."
