David Luiz insists Chelsea could restore their European reputation in the Europa League following the "embarrassment" of becoming the first Champions League holders to crash out of the competition before Christmas.

Wednesday night's 6-1 win over Nordsjaelland in their final Group E game proved futile as Juventus won away to Shakhtar Donetsk to consign the Blues to the continent's second-tier competition. But defender Luiz declared there was no point "crying" over what was a moment of unwanted history for the club 200 days after their greatest night.

Luiz said: "The Europa League is glamorous for me. I don't have this title so I want to win it. I look to the Europa League like I did the Champions League because I don't have this medal. We can do great things in this competition."
