David Luiz went down after receiving a nasty looking smack in the face from the ball in Chelsea’s game against Bournemouth this evening.
The Blues ace really felt the power of this shot as it hit him from close range, though he was up again playing not too long after.
There’s a lot of talk now about concussion and the damage that heading the ball can do to a player over the course of a long career, so Luiz won’t be too pleased with this incident.
Even worse, however, is the fact that Chelsea are once again struggling, with Bournemouth a goal to the good and January signing Gonzalo Higuain invisible so far.
David Luiz got absolutely rocked in the face by a ball kicked full force from about 5 yards away. Knocked out cold, then back in the game playing like a champ 45 seconds later. I guess the concussion protocols are a bit different across the pond ?. pic.twitter.com/bSNRUDDrHT
