David Luiz lands on his face after attempting acrobatic kick against Leicester City

Contrary to popular belief, David Luiz is a defender. With that in mind, he's not expected to start attempting any acrobatics in the opposition's box.

But with his side leading Leicester courtesy of Wes Morgan Diego Costa, that's *exactly* what the Brazilian thought he'd try and do.

Up for a set piece, Luiz found himself needing to improvise as the ball looked to be heading out for a goal kick.

Up he went, completely missing the ball.

And then down he went, looking a bit silly.

Absolute magic. Fair play to him. You'd never see John Terry attempting anything like this.

Thankfully, the 29-year-old didn't appear to do too much damage to himself with the fall and was swiftly up on his feet in seconds.

Chelsea went on to take a two goal lead into the break, with Eden Hazard adding to Diego Costa's opener minutes later.

Not the finest of opening 45 minutes for Leicester, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in 12th place in the league with eight points from their opening seven matches, and left the ground with no points, losing the game 3-0.
