Chelsea are preparing for their FA Cup clash with Wolves tomorrow, but they’ll likely have to take on the Championship outfit without star defender David Luiz.
It’s been a huge season for the Brazil international, who has transformed from liability to indispensable since his first haphazard bout in England, becoming an integral figure in the 3-4-3 formation that has rocketed the Blues to the top of the Premier League table.
But Luiz was seen limping during a 1-1 draw with Burnley last weekend and after picturing himself in hospital, he’s expected to sit out Chelsea’s Fifth Round tie on Saturday.
With his importance to the Chelsea gameplan in mind, we asked Blues fans earlier this week to vote for which defender should replace Luiz in the starting XI to face Wolves.
Well, the results of our exclusive poll are now in and as you can see, Kurt Zouma came out on top by quite some distance with 57% of the vote. Captain John Terry, meanwhile, even ranked behind youngster Nathan Ake.
