Luiz aiming to make up for CWC heartbreak

Chelsea defender David Luiz wants to make up for their FIFA Club World Cup loss to Corinthians by winning the Premier League.

Jose Paolo Guerrero netted the only goal of the game at the Nissan Stadium in Japan on Sunday to lead the Brazilian club to a 1-0 win.

Luiz, who was reduced to tears at the final whistle, believes it's time to forget about the defeat and focus on making amends in the English top flight.

"I am sad because I said before the game this is one competition I really wanted to win," the defender told the club's official website.

"But I lost a final and now I am going to look for another title in my life.

"Chelsea tried to win all the game and all the players worked hard to score. We created a lot of opportunities to score but we were unlucky because we couldn't score one goal.

"This was the game, two teams worked hard to win the title but only one team could score a goal.

"I am disappointed but I need to look to the future because I have many games ahead.

"I play for a big club and I need to win and I need to win big titles, so Chelsea must now try to win the Premier League."
