DAVID Luiz believes Chelsea can still beat Manchester United to the Premier League title – and that his belief in God will make him a better player for the Blues.
Luiz put in a man of the match performance on Sunday to help Chelsea reduce the gap between them and United to nine points, with the Blues having a game in hand.
Asked if Chelsea could still retain their league title, he said: "I think so – definitely. There are many games to play, and many points involved."
Speaking in Portuguese, translated by team-mate Paulo Ferreira , he said: "We are in a good way now, and we have to believe."
And the Brazilian is clear on the overriding influence that has made him into a great player, and will make him better yet – God.
On the subject of Sunday matches with Chelsea he said: "I think God lets me play every day. God is in my heart. I am thankful to him for my health and for my family.
"My faith makes me believe that I can improve and be even better."
