David Luiz faceplants the floor after attempting an overhead kick

We all know that David Luiz is a bit of an erratic defender.

When Chelsea splashed £32 million on the 29-year-old, it’s fair to say it raised a few eyebrows.

The Brazilian was sold by the Blues for a quite ridiculous £50 million two years ago but someone at the club obviously missed him and he returned to Stamford Bridge this summer.

An old-fashioned centre-back, he is not.

Luis enjoys playing football and taking risks. He’s also got a bags of flair - well he is Brazilian after all.

We saw that in the first-half of Chelsea clash with Leicester.

Luis struck a sensational free-kick from 30-yards which crashed off the woodwork - it would have been a spectacular goal.

However, just minutes later, he reminded everyone of his more crazy side.

With the ball bouncing out towards the touchline, he decided to attempt an acrobatic effort to get the ball back into the box.

What happened, though, was rather hilarious.

He completely missed the ball and ended up face planting the floor.

It was brilliant:

Although Luiz may have had a bit of a headache, he won’t care with his side 2-0 up at half-time against last season’s champions.

Diego Costa put them aside after the striker found himself in acres of space in the box from a corner.

Eden Hazard then doubled their lead after Pedro put them through whilst on the floor with the Belgian rounding Kasper Schmeichel before finishing.

Chelsea look in cruise control but don’t be surprised to see a few more crazy moments from Luiz before the game is finished.
