Yes, David Luiz, you're in midfield today! - Scott Heavey
The first game of Chelsea's adventure in the Club World Cup is here! Rejoice! David Luiz is in midfield for some reason!
Rafa has gone bold with his selection for the FIFA Club World Cup Semi-final by selecting David Luiz in the pivot next to Mikel. He played there briefly against FC Nordsjælland, but this is his first time starting in midfield for Chelsea. Plenty of people have wanted to try it, and he would relieve a lot of the pressure on our midfield from the injury to Oriol Romeu, and John Obi Mikel being plucked into the Nigerian squad for the AfCON in January. This is a relatively harmless game in which to try this, so lets hope it works!
