Gary Cahill Backs David Luiz to be Good Andreas Christensen Role Model

David Luiz can be perfect role model to Andreas Christensen at Chelsea - Gary Cahill

Luiz returned for Wednesday night's 4-0 win at Qarabag, which secured Chelsea's place in the last 16 of the Champions League, giving Antonio Conte a selection dilemma ahead of Saturday's trip to Liverpool.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has backed David Luiz to become a role model and mentor for young defender Andreas Christensen.

Denmark defender Christensen slotted in seamlessly in a 1-0 win over Manchester United and kept his place for last Saturday's 4-0 victory at West Brom.

"David came back in and performed well", the Blues skipper said. I feel like David can offer Andreas a lot of help in his progression.

"Monchengladbach had hoped to get him for another year - but I suspect Conte saw Christensen was ready to play for a big team".

Chelsea advanced ahead of December's clash with Atletico Madrid, who beat Roma to maintain their slim chances of progressing from Group C.

Gary Cahill and Chelsea are entering a crucial stretch of fixture congestion that will determine whether or not they can get back into position to defender their Premier League title. It is a good achievement. We didn't want to leave it until the last game, for what will be a very hard game. "We have a job to do in a fortnight, but beating Qarabag has taken some of the edge off".

The Reds were 3-0 up at half-time, but Conte is not reading too much into the result.

"I watched the game and I think Liverpool played a really good first half with great intensity and they scored three goals", Conte said. Also, it's pretty rare for anybody in any vocation to take pride in helping to further facilitate the career of an individual who replaces them in their gig.
