David Luiz confident of Chelsea double

David Luiz is convinced Chelsea can end the season on a positive by completing a trophy double of FA Cup and Europa League, The Independent reports.

The Blues are 19 points behind league leaders Manchester United and crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage, with many fans discontented at the appointment of Rafa Benitez on an interim basis. Benitez has already stated he will not stay beyond the end of the season, criticising the club’s fans, with Chelsea facing a hectic end-of-season schedule, fighting for two cup competitions.

Luiz is determined to help Chelsea end the season on a high with victory in the FA Cup, if they can get past Manchester United in a replay to set up a semi-final trip to Wembley, and success in the Europa League. The Brazilian is on international duty, facing Russia at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, but is concentrated on rescuing Chelsea’s campaign and giving the fans some positives from a turbulent year.

The 25 year old said: “I think we are not playing at the level expected from Chelsea and not doing so well this season. We can still win the Europa League, are still in the FA Cup, so I think we can still get there and this season can be very good”.
