Luiz feels Chelsea still in with a strong title challenge

Chelsea defender David Luiz believes the character and belief of the players at the club will hold them in good stead as the season progresses.

The Blues have fallen 11 points behind league leaders Manchester City but the Brazilian centre-back feels they can bridge the gap and be pushing for the title come seasons end.

"We have had some difficult months on the pitch but everybody is focused on training hard and the mentality of the team is so good and so strong," Luiz told the club's official website.

"I am sure we will finish the season fighting for the first place in the table.

"We have a strong belief and the group is united, so if we can make a good run of wins we can challenge again.

"It is important that we work together while important players like Didier Drogba, Branislav Ivanovic and John Obi Mikel are unavailable to maintain our results."
