David Luiz is rightly taking pelters for his defending against Tottenham this evening.
The Chelsea defender has been an important part of Maurizio Sarri’s new-look side this season, but hasn’t shown why tonight.
Instead, he’s served up a terrible defensive performance – with his play on two of Tottenham’s goals not what you would expect from a £34million centre back.
Luiz’s first mistake was to give away the foul that led to Dele Alli’s opener and he then turned his back on a soft Harry Kane shot that ended up beating goalkeeper Kepa easily for the second.
The Brazilian allowing Son Heung-Min to breeze past him for Tottenham’s third goal just compounded his terrible game.
And people are not happy with Luiz’s performance:
Son did brilliantly but David Luiz.. he has too many Sunday league moments. A liability

David Luiz committed the foul for the 1st, acted as a dummy for the 2nd and got out of Son's way for the 3rd.
What a day for him.

David Luiz is such a nice guy. Really kind of him to get out of the way of Kane's shot to allow him to score.

How is David Luiz still a professional footballer?

Another embarrassing goal.
Jorginho needs a rest.
Luiz needs to retire.

You get the point.
Chelsea trailed 3-0 and you struggled to see how they were going to get back into the game against a rampant Tottenham side that look like scoring more – and they didn’t, despite Olivier Giroud scoring a consolation goal late on.
