Footballer David Luiz dedicated Chelsea's win on Saturday to those killed in the Chapecoense plane crash.

The Brazilian player, who had ice strapped to his knee following Sergio Aguero's tackle, declined to speak about the brawl at the end of the match.

He and fellow Brazilian player Willian displayed a black arm band to the crowd during the match.

"I prefer to give this victory to the people in Brazil, Luiz said after the match. "I had some friends there and it's difficult to play this kind of game. We just need to play for the families because it's difficult for everyone."

Players from both sides wore black arm bands in tribute to the 71 people who died in Monday's crash outside Medellin, Colombia.
