David Luiz takes ESPN PFA award

Chelsea's new defensive star David Luiz has been named the ESPN PFA Fans' Player of the Month for March in the Premier League.

Luiz has made an immediate impression following his £22 million move from Benfica in January, with his all-action performances, and his distinctive hair, endearing him to the Chelsea support.

The Brazil international also scored in the wins over Manchester United and Manchester City in March, demonstrating that he is a real talent at both ends of the pitch.

His performances saw him scoop the award ahead of another January signing, Liverpool's Luis Suarez, while Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Javier Hernandez (Manchester United) and Scott Parker (West Ham) also made the shortlist.

Luiz's swift acclimatisation to English football has impressed manager Carlo Ancelotti.

"He is a fantastic defender with the ball," Ancelotti said. "He has to improve without the ball and he has to be more focused defensively but obviously he will improve.

"He will be the future of Chelsea. In our kind of football it is important for the centre-backs to start to play from the back with clean passes."

ESPN PFA Fans' Awards - March winners:

Premier League: David Luiz (Chelsea)

Championship: Jonathan Howson (Leeds United)

League One: Peter Clarke (Huddersfield)

League Two: Alex Cisak (Accrington Stanley)
