Luiz praises Chelsea star Hazard after Liverpool triumph

Chelsea defender David Luiz heaped kind words on all of his teammates after they managed to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues came from behind after Martin Skrtel slotted home inside four minutes with Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto'o edging them ahead before half-time.

In the limelight yet again for a wonderful performance was Belgian wizard Hazard and it was he who was singled out by the Brazilian.

"Of course it is not very good to (concede) a goal in the first minutes but there was a really strong mentality in the team, we gave everything on the pitch and it was magic tonight," Luiz said on Sky Sports 1.

"Eden had a great game tonight and I'm happy we have players like Eden in the team because then I see amazing football."

And of Chelsea's title hopes, with the southwest Londoners two points behind leaders Arsenal, Luiz added: "We will keep fighting for the title."
