Chelsea fans want David Luiz dropped after just four appearances under Maurizio Sarri.
Luiz was one of our best players during the 2016/17 campaign. He was given a new lease of life in the centre of Antonio Conte’s back-three, but his relationship with the Italian fast deteriorated.
Luiz spent almost the entirety of last season on the sidelines. Whether injury or Conte’s stubbornness were the main contributor to his absence remains to be seen.
Either way, Luiz is back in the squad and back in the starting eleven. Sarri appears to be fond of his excellent work on the ball, but Chelsea fans have grown tired of his shortfalls off it.
After a poor performance in the Community Shield, Luiz wasn’t tested on the opening day of the season – thankfully.
He was against Arsenal, and failed the test. He was also at fault for Newcastle’s goal at the weekend after switching off and allowing Joselu to head home past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea fans want Luiz out the starting eleven immediately. Many used Twitter as a platform to vent their frustration.

David Luiz with the worst defending I’ve ever seen.
ZERO argument you can make that Christensen doesn’t deserve to play over him.
THAT. WAS. AWFUL.

Get David Luiz out of my back line

David Luiz out. What awful defending, attack the ball there.
Christensen needs to start.

Good morning to everyone except those that rate David Luiz over Andreas Christensen.

David Luiz is Sarri Conte’s Bakayoko. Won’t be dropped regardless

Andreas Christensen doesn’t deserve to start because David Luiz made a mistake against Newcastle
Andreas Christensen deserves to start because he is a better defender

I’d take Gary Cahill over David Luiz every single day of the week forever.
