Just before the current international break, Arsenal played host to Bournemouth at the Emirates. On a day where we thought we’d see much goals, only one goal made the difference.
David Luiz headed home Pepe’s cross from the corner kick to score the only goal of the game. A goal which ensured the team climbed up to third on the table.
The celebrations that followed the goal showed how happy the team was, not just for the goal, but the goalscorer.
David Luiz might have been in the team for only over 2 months, but he looks settled already, commanding respect and love from his teammates.
Unai Emery had some great words to say about the defender after the game.
“He’s very positive. Every time he’s speaking about positive things and helping young players.He came late into the squad but really, his commitment is very high with us, and his behaviour is too. Everybody is happy with that.”
The praises didn’t stop there, as fellow defender, Callum Chambers also had some nice words reserved for the ‘nice guy’.
“David has been brilliant,” he said. “He has come in and no-one in the club has a bad word to say about him.
“He is one of the nicest guys I have met, he talks to you, gives you advice and makes everyone feel like he is giving you his undivided attention.
“Off the pitch, he is a great guy and on the pitch he brings his qualities and is playing well at the moment.
“He brings some added experience, obviously he was won things and I haven’t won as many things as he has so there are things I can learn from him both on and off the pitch, it is always good to have experience like that in the team.”
