Luiz was one of the revelation's of last season after joining Chelsea from Portuguese giants Benfica in the January transfer window, impressing many with his swashbuckling style of play from the centre of defence.
His assured performances at the back had many suggesting he could go on to hold down a spot in the Chelsea first team for the next decade, but the Brazilian international has found his progress this season hampered by a thigh injury.
However, Luiz has since recovered from that setback and is line to make his first appearance of the season on Monday when Brazil take on Ghana in an international friendly at Craven Cottage.
And while Luiz is slightly frustrated at his injury-hampered start to the season, he is now ready to reclaim his place in the Chelsea starting lineup.
"I didn't want to get injured, but these things happen in football," Luiz told The Sun.
"I'm missing playing in the Premier League so much and I hope I get to play again very soon.
"It's very frustrating when you're hurt because you want to be out there.
"Everybody wants to work, especially when you love your job."
Luiz does admit he is not guaranteed an automatic return to the Chelsea starting eleven even when he returns to full fitness, but insists he is mentally prepared to overcome all possible challenges.
"Of course, when it's the coach's decision for me not to play it's very frustrating too, but you always want to get better as quickly as possible when you're injured.
"To play in a great team you have to have a great mentality to overcome all the difficulties."
Chelsea are currently two points adrift leaders Manchester United after winning two out of their opening three matches, but Luiz is confident his team-mates will do everything they can to reclaim their Premier League title they relinquished last season.
"Chelsea are a great team and always enter every competition to win.
"I'm sure we're going to do our very best to win the championship back from Manchester United."
This summer has been a period of change at Stamford Bridge, with new manager Andre Villas-Boas bringing in a number of fresh faces in the form of Spanish World Cup winner Juan Mata, Belgian wonderkid Romelu Lukaku and Portuguese midfield dynamo Raul Meireles amongst others.
Luiz is confident the injection of fresh blood will significantly bolster Chelsea's title aspirations this season.
"They are great players, excellent players.
"If Chelsea called on these players, it's because the club know they are valuable and talented.
"I just hope they can help us become stronger. It's always important to have good players to help you."
Luiz is also looming as an important member of the Brazil national team as they prepare to host the 2014 World Cup, and the 24-year-old believes the Premier League is the perfect arena for more of his compatriots to showcase their talents.
"I hope we see more Brazilians coming to England and I hope they are lucky as I have been.
"For me, I am playing in the best and greatest league in the world. It is the most difficult and has great matches.
"I am very happy to play in the Premier League and I'm sure many people will agree with me."
Luiz impressed many with how quickly he adapted to the physical nature of English football, whose leagues are notoriously unforgiving on South American players.
And the former Benfica man believes Chelsea have done an excellent job in helping him settle down in England.
"It was a natural thing for me to come to England because Chelsea made sure I only had to worry about playing football.
"Things happened naturally and I've adapted totally.
"Everything has been very good and individually the move has been great for me."
Luiz made twelve appearances for Chelsea last season, and netted against Manchester United and Manchester City.
With both those clubs currently leading the league standings, Chelsea fans will be hoping Luiz returns soon to inflict similar blows on their Premier League title rivals.
