David Luiz embarrasses Pedro on return to Chelsea training

Football News

David Luiz took part in his first training session yesterday since arriving back at Chelsea on deadline day, and he wasted little time leaving his mark on one teammate in particular. 

The Brazilian defender made the shock switch back from Paris Saint-Germain in the last few hours of the Premier League's transfer deadline day a week ago, returning to the team he left in 2014 when he transferred for a record-breaking fee of £50 million, the most ever paid for a defender.  

It looks as if it's taken Luiz very little time to make an impression back at Chelsea, after the 29-year-old embarrassed winger Pedro with a cheeky nutmeg in training earlier this week.

Unfortunately for the Spaniard, cameras were around to catch the moment, and the video was posted to Chelsea's 7.4 million twitter followers.

Chelsea fans will be hoping that Luiz can replicate this confidence on the pitch, as the Premier League returns this weekend after the international break.

The Blues take a trip to Wales where they face Swansea City in a match that will likely be the toughest test for Antonio Conte's side so far this season.      

With Chelsea's defence leaking goals, and the fact that they've only kept one clean sheet in four games this season, it's likely that Luiz will walk straight into the side. Whether he will replace John Terry or Gary Cahill though is yet to be seen.       

You can see Luiz nutmegging Pedro in the video below.

Cahill returns to his club side after featuring in England's opening World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, which the Three Lion's won 1-0 after a 94th minute Adam Lallana goal.

His centre-back partner Terry returned to training after a short break, as his Instagram revealed he was on holiday in Portugal last week.      

Although Luiz has been criticised in the press since his return to Chelsea, with many questioning the Brazilian's composure in particular, his acquisition will surely boost Conte's defence, and the Blues should be able to mount a decent challenge for Premier League glory.
