Video: David Luiz doubles Chelsea lead vs Man City with brilliant header

That theme continued after the interval as City toiled in their bid to find a breakthrough and get back into the game, with Luiz eventually putting Chelsea in a dominant position to secure all three points.

As seen in the video below, the Brazilian international rose highest from a corner and expertly directed his effort towards the back post as he beat Ederson to nestle into the back of the net.

It was a crucial goal for Chelsea, while Liverpool fans will also have enjoyed it as if City fail to win at Stamford Bridge, the Reds will sit alone at the top of the Premier League table after this weekend.
