David Luiz’s second Chelsea debut did not start all that well.
His team fell behind inside 17 minutes at home to Chelsea, moments before the Brazilian powerfully butted the back of Sadio Mane’s head as the pair contested an aerial duel.
There was no malice on Luiz’s behalf, but he still did lots of damage – to his own face, which was left covered in blood from a busted nose.

Like a trooper, though, Luiz was back on the pitch within moments.
God bless Vaseline!
