David Luiz knows Tottenham are a threat, but remains defiant that Chelsea are top of the premier league for a reason.
Chelsea surged to the summit of the table after a 13-match winning streak, which was snapped by Tottenham.
Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table has now been reduced to just four points after their 2-0 loss to Manchester United.
Luiz knows Tottenham are the team in form at the moment, but insists Chelsea are still favourites to win the league.
“Tottenham are playing very well but also we are top of the table for a reason,” he told Chelsea’s official website.
“We still have to play a lot of football, so we need to look forward and play the next games.”
