Cape Town - Chelsea defender David Luiz says he is happy to be back in action for the Blues and is enjoying his football again under Maurizio Sarri.

The Brazilian struggled with injuries and also fell out of favour with former Blues manager Antonio Conte during the 2017/18 season.

The 31-year old defender, who is in his second spell with the London club, has bounced back and featured in all the four opening matches as Chelsea maintained their perfect start to the new season under the Italian.

"First of all, he's a great person, great as a human being. I think his philosophy to live life is already great because he wants to enjoy every day, he wants to be happy and he wanted this opportunity to start one more chapter in his life," Luiz told the Chelsea Magazine.

"So, I believe in his philosophy and then after that he is a great coach. He wants to play with the ball; he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent.

"Every week he tries to make the best plan possible for the exact game and this is great because is working in the best way for the team, for the collective.

"I never went onto the pitch in a Chelsea shirt thinking, we're going to lose today. The feeling is always that we will win and this is a great feeling, because I've been playing football for many, many years and if you feel that way every day, it means you're in the right place."
