David Luiz confesses rowing with Chelsea teammates

Chelsea defender David Luiz admits he regularly clashes with teammates.

Luiz has often been criticised and was one of several players below par in the 3-1 thumping at West Ham that has turned up the heat on boss Rafa Benitez.

Angry words were exchanged in a stormy dressing-room inquest.

But Luiz said: "Having words with someone is something positive for the team and the players have to feel comfortable with it.

"I knew the responsibility of wearing the Chelsea shirt when I came here. But I got it into my head that I could never let myself be intimidated by the fact that the club had big names."
