David Luiz helps Chelsea team-mate Willian celebrate his 30th birthday

David Luiz helped Chelsea team-mate Willian to celebrate his 30th birthday in style with an extravagant football-themed cake.

While Willian didn't mark the occasion with a deadline day move, he was joined by  his fellow Brazilian at a bash on Thursday.

The winger's impressive two-tier cake featured a checked black and white bottom layer to mimic a football.

The green upper layer was finished with a goal, a crowd and a tall, blue-shirted footballer who bears a striking resemblance to the birthday boy himself.

Both Willian and Luiz will hope to be involved when Chelsea kick off their Premier League season away to Huddersfield on Saturday.

Luiz started and Willian came on as a substitute during the Stamford Bridge side's  disappointing 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.

However, the club will hope their deadline day purchases will ensure a better start to the league campaign.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who joined for a record £71million from Atletic Bilbao, is likely to start in goal, although fellow new boy Mateo Kovacic may have to settle for a place on the bench.

The Spaniard's arrival at Stamford Bridge has seen the record move for a goalkeeper smashed twice in three weeks following Liverpool's £65m capture of Alisson from Roma last month.
