Chelsea defender David Luiz admits that he would like to take more free kicks in the future.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has admitted that he would like the opportunity to add to his free kick tally after scoring against Nordsjaelland on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old scored from a 25-yard set piece as Chelsea recorded a 4-0 victory against their Danish opponents and the Brazilian centre-back has insisted that he has the confidence to be able to score more long-range goals - if he can wrestle the ball off Juan Mata and Frank Lampard.

Luiz told The Mirror: "I will try to take more free kicks. In Denmark, I had a great place for a shot, but we have Mata and Frank and every day we just do it in training.

"Sometimes they give me the ball and I had the confidence to take the ball and just shoot. If you have confidence to shoot, you can shoot."

Luiz has now scored six goals in 61 Chelsea appearances.
