Chelsea defender David Luiz admits season defining week ahead

Chelsea defender David Luiz recognises they enter a massive seven days next week.

Monday's FA Cup game against Manchester United is the first of three huge matches in a seven-day period, with Malmo visiting the Bridge for the return leg on Thursday before they take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City once again in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley next Sunday.

"I think we have to be positive and think about what we can do now because the past is the past, you cannot change it," David Luiz said.

"I've been playing for big clubs for many years. When you win it's good and when you lose of course nobody is going to be happy and the pressure is going to be there.

"I think we work together, we try to make them [the fans] happy and we are going to do everything to make them happy."
