David Luiz says that Chelsea "must win" the Europa League after suffering heartbreak in three finals this season.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has said that Chelsea "must win" the Europa League after losing three finals earlier this season.

The Blues beat Basel 3-1 at Stamford Bridge to win the tie 5-2 on aggregate, with Luiz netting in both matches.

However, Luiz is determined to win the final, after already suffering heartbreak in the finals of the Community Shield, UEFA Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup this season.

"I try every game to help the team. The second half was better and I am happy we are in the final," Luiz told The Metro.

"This is one more opportunity to win a title.

"We lost three finals this season, so now is the time to win."

Chelsea will face Benfica in the final, after the Portuguese side beat Fenerbahce 3-2 on aggregate.
