​Chelsea defender David Luiz had good reason to joke around following his side's 2-1 win over Manchester City on Wednesday night, a result that maintains Chelsea's seven point lead at the top of the Premier League.

The Blues needed two fortuitous goals from star-man Eden Hazard, who takes his tally for the season up to 13 in 28 appearances.

And while his teammate David Luiz described Hazard as 'fantastic' after the win, he couldn't help from poking fun at his teammate by calling him 'ugly'.

"He is a fantastic player. I am very happy for him because he had a bad year last year. He is also ugly…" Luiz told ​SFR Sport.

David Luiz's comical statements aside, Chelsea have an almighty few weeks of Premier league action coming up with trips to Bournemouth and Manchester United, followed by the visit of Southampton to Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte's side have eight games to wrap up the Premier League title, but they must ward off solid form from Spurs, who have matched the Blues at every turn over the last month, now sitting just seven points behind in second.
