Neville: Mourinho was at his best and David Luiz was 'excellent'

David Luiz

Pundit in praise of two key Chelsea figures from their Champions League win.

Chelsea produced a memorable Champions League comeback against PSG, with heroes all over the pitch.

Yet among the collective team heroics there were individuals worthy of particular merit, on and off the pitch.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville took to Twitter to highlight two of them, Jose Mourinho and David Luiz.

Off to Munich. At Chelsea last night. Mourinho at his best. Patience/ waiting. Chasing a game but not looking like they are chasing a game.

Measured attacks knowing one chance will come. NIL against the critical task. All else will take care of itself.

PSG lethargic. Would even question their fitness. Looked heavy legged and not capable of high tempo. Thought Luiz was excellent for Chelsea

Chelsea's David Luiz was criticised after a hapless performance in the first leg, but after the second, manager Jose Mourinho described his display as akin to a 'monster'.

The Brazilian may be a little Jekyll and Hyde, but when it comes to his display on Tuesday night, there's no disagreeing with the man who once belittled his defensive skill, that he really was 'excellent.'
