We compile the best reaction to the Brazilian left-back's performance for Chelsea in the Capital One Cup last night.

Had Filipe Luis moved to any Premier League club but Chelsea he would already likely be a key figure in their starting line-up.

However, such is Jose Mourinho's abundance of options in defensive situations, the Brazilian has had to bide his time since moving from Atletico Madrid this summer.

The form of Cesar Azpilicueta has meant that Luis has spent most of his time on the substitutes' bench since arriving at Stamford Bridge, but his display last night may have given Mourinho a selection dilemma. 

Luis was in fine form against Derby County in the League Cup, as he scored a free-kick during the Blues' 3-1 success against their Championship opponents. 

It was a demonstration of his attacking ability as well as his rock-solid defending and Chelsea supporters have begun to ask for him to play a more prominent role in their team. 

Luis has only featured in seven Premier League games since joining Mourinho's team, but he will be aiming to be part of the line-up which faces Stoke City at the weekend. 

Here is the best reaction from Chelsea supporters on social media site Twitter to last night's display.
