David Luiz: I have no point to prove at Chelsea

David Luiz has insisted he has nothing to prove at Chelsea despite being omitted from Jose Mourinho's matchday squad for the victory over Fulham last week.

The Brazilian centre back, who was linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer, returned to the starting line up along with Juan Mata for last night's 2-0 League Cup win at Swindon.

Luiz, 26, said he respects Jose Mourinho's rotation policy and was just happy to be involved again:

"I don't need to prove anything. Everyone knows who David Luiz is, I want to play football and enjoy myself on the pitch so when I have an opportunity to play, I want to enjoy just that.

"I am just one player in the team. Sometimes the manager can put me in, sometimes not. It's his choice."
