David Luiz insists: I'm lucky to play for Chelsea

David Luiz has tried to put to bed any rumours that he is unhappy at Chelsea.

The Brazilian defender, who has recently been performing well in central midfield for the Blues, has been linked with a Stamford Bridge departure in the past two transfer windows but insists he is loving life in west London.

"I love to play for Chelsea, I love to play football, it doesn't matter if I play in midfield or defence," he said in the wake of Monday night's 1-0 win over Manchester City, where he partnered winter signing Nemanja Matic in the middle of the pitch.

"I'm just lucky to play for a big club and it's nice when you can play with very good players like Matic."
