WATCH: David Luiz Just Produced The Coolest Piece Of Defending You'll Ever See

In one of the highlights of the Community Shield clash between Premier League winners Chelsea and FA Cup winners Arsenal at Wembley, David Luiz produced an ice cool piece of defending.

Late in the half, Arsenal looked to set Danny Welbeck away but the Brazilian, in his second spell at Chelsea, read it perfectly.

And instead of hooking the ball up the field, despite being under immense pressure from his opponent in the six-yard box, the Blues centre-back served up one of the most nonchalant pieces of play you will ever have the pleasure of laying your eyes on.

Get a load of this:

Just beautiful isn't it? Cool as you like from Luiz, who continues to look a class act under Antonio Conte's tutelage. First he casually flicks the ball over Welbeck, and then follows it up with a lovely backwards header that sees the ball arrive back in Thibaut Courtois' grasp.

Chelsea fans absolutely loved the Samba-style goodness churned in from their No.30. Here's how social media reacted:

As good as it was though, the passage of play from Luiz was technically illegal and should have led to an indirect free-kick being awarded in Arsenal's favour.

Metro notes that the rules of the game, and Law 12 specifically, state a player is not allowed use a deliberate trick while the ball is in play to pass the ball back to their own goalkeeper whether it be with head, chest, knee, etc.

Luiz committed the above offence and so Bobby Madley should have blown for an indirect free-kick to Arsenal.
