You can put the blame on me – David Luiz

“It’s my fault, The team did well, especially with 10 men. The coach is amazing, all the players are amazing, it was my fault”

A statement made post the game against Man City where David Luiz’s introduction post an injury to Pablo Mari led to Arsenal conceding two goals directly from his errors. The first was a misplaced block which fed into Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling who fired past Bernd Leno who was having a spectacular night.  To cap an even more disappointing night, Luiz conceded a penalty in the 49′ of the game after fouling Mahrez in the box which the team proceeded to concede from and saw him leave his team with a man short for the rest of the first half.

Arsenal was unable to recover from the goals and the game was emotionally lost at the time. City scored a third in the final minutes of the game and David Luiz was very open about his role in the defeat.

“I should have taken a different decision in the last two months but I didn’t,” he told Sky Sports.

“All about my contract, if I stay here or not. I have 14 days to be here and that’s it. I should have tried to decide my future as early as possible, but I didn’t.

“I don’t want to use that as an alibi or excuse, it’s my fault – that’s it. I love to be here. That’s why I continue to train hard.”

David Luiz is currently in contract negotiations with Arsenal with his one-year renewable deal scheduled to expire in the coming days. In an interview with Sky Sports post the game, he insisted he wanted to remain at Arsenal and insinuated he had the coaches backing. A statement that was supported by Mikel Arteta shortly after stating

“He has spoken in the dressing room,” Arteta said. “David is someone who is very honest.

“My opinion has not changed from the moment I joined the team and it won’t change because of a difficult performance tonight.”

[…] A game with saw the Gunners lose two its key players, Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari to injuries within the first twenty-nine munites of a game they ended up losing 3-0. Not helped by a calamitous outing by substitute David Luiz who took ownership of his errors in his post-match statements […]

Honestly I don’t know what is wrong with some coaches this days, we are playing a very though match and at the same time we are lacking much experience players why can’t you use the little you have? Ateta cannot be able to handle a team like arsenal that is the real truth. How can you sub pepe, lacazette, and ceballos all the same time. Nawa for arsenal ….

Hi Nazeef, I think this has to do more with the quality of the squad. Three managers and the same problems remain. We need to fix

if only Arsenal knows how the club is loved in Nigeria they will not be playing the way they do. From my analysis the team maygo to relegation next season. More than 8 good players are needed to change the team. the current team is not just serious and has no focus
