Chelsea's Champions League draw against Paris St Germain puts Diego Costa up against David Luiz and it's a battle I personally cannot wait to see. Who do you think will come out on top over both games?
We have defended Luiz to the hilt while he was here. We supported him and backed him when his defending was compared to "A ten year old controlling him on Play Station!". We loved him and saw him move into midfield where he gave us yet another option. We then saw him sold for what seemed like a fantastic deal to PSG before the World Cup in Brazil.
Every single one of us can see his weaknesses and watched as they were exposed time and time again as Germany thrashed Brazil 7-0 in the World Cup Semi Final.
Diego Costa has made a fabulous start to his Chelsea career scoring goals for fun and giving defenders up and down the country a hard time. I expect him to do exactly the same against Thiago Silva and David Luiz in BOTH games.
Just look at Costa's performance against Dejan Lovern and Martin Skrtel at Liverpool. He dominated and bossed BOTH of them all game scoring the winner to take the three points back to Stamford Bridge.
David Luiz WILL have his hands full with Diego Costa. If Costa can bully him and force him into mistakes and rash challenges that we know he is more than capable of, it could be two really long nights for the Brazilian and his Parisian team mates.
Let's hope that is the case!
What's your initial impressions of a Costa v Luiz battle and who do you think will come out on top?
