Luiz scored his side's second against Manchester City and spoke about the nature of attacking and defending players. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has also stated he wants the player to stay on.

David Luiz of Chelsea celebrates after scoring his team's second goal with Ross Barkley during the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on December 8, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

"The way we played in the first half was incredible", Guardiola said.

"We need to play with this level of determination, with the right aggression in the other matches", he added.

"It was good to play against a fantastic team, keep the clean sheet and have a great game". Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating the matter.
