Chelsea’s David Luiz took down Edin Dzeko with a bear-hug in the defeat at Man City [Pictures & GIF]

Chelsea’s Brazilian defender David Luiz had a shocker at Man City on Saturday.

Playing at centre-half alongside Gary Cahill, Luiz lost both Samir Nasri in the build-up to the second goal in what was a real horror show, while the #4 was arguably lucky to still be on the pitch for a terrible tackle on Dzeko.

Having been booked at the end of the first half, Luiz committed a stupid foul of the City’s Bosnian striker in the 55th as he wrestled, bear-hugged and eventually rugby tackled his opponent to the floor.

Footage of how Chelsea’s Luiz was involved in Man CIty’s second goal is below, together with a series of images from the coming together between the Brazilian and Man City’s Dzeko.
