New footage of yesterday evening’s bust-up between Chelsea stars David Luiz and Gonzalo Higuain appears to show Luiz elbowing his teammate.
The bust-up between the Chelsea stars started after Higuain failed in his attempts to win the ball from Luiz, the Argentine talisman tried his luck once more but was met by an elbow to the face from the Brazilian.
Higuain was understandably shocked after the incident and the former Real Madrid forward has words with Luiz.
Shortly after the pair’s coming together, Blues boss Maurizio Sarri threw his cap to the floor and stormed off the pitch.
However a spokesperson for Chelsea later revealed that Sarri’s frustration was due to the team not being able to practice set-pieces because of the presence of the media. Check out the statement here.
