David Luiz: 'We didn't play at our high level.'

David Luiz says Chelsea were too slow when moving the ball in their 0-0 draw with West Ham.

The Brazilian admitted the Blues didn’t perform at a 'high level' at the London stadium on Sunday and insists it's the main reason why they didn’t seal three points over the Hammers.

"Of course, we are disappointed," Luiz told the club's official website. "We didn't play a fantastic game, we didn't create a lot.

"It was too slow, moving the ball to create the gaps or our movements without the ball, and that is why we couldn't score.

"I think our plan is fantastic. On Sunday we didn't play at our high level so that is why we didn't win.

"We know that many teams now are going to play against us this way, with a low block and trying to play on the counter-attack, so there was not a lot of space, but it is up to us to try to find a solution.

"The best games are games like that."

Chelsea play Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Wednesday before hosting the Premier League leaders on Saturday.

"We are going to play against a fantastic team, so we need to rest and be ready for both games," he said.
