You can't ignore Luiz being stupid or act like clown but when fully focused he si excellent.
Down to being in a back three again? He was elite under Conte, it’s when he’s in a pairing he loses it.
He was good and comfortable. Some nice replays by Sky showed how focused he was. He is very comfortable on the ball and brought it as far as the half way line as his team mates backed away. I hope he'll get through the next year with today as a base level of performance.
Was certain he'd get sent off eventually, after the early yellow. Very calm / collected performance.
Got a yellow covering a Mustafi mistake, other than that it was a pretty good performance. Hopefully we dont have to offer him a contract every time his form dips. If teams are happy to let our centrebacks be on the ball we probably cant do without him.
Perhaps the imminent arrival of Saliba is part of the reason we extended Luiz? That character, willingness to help and he’s the only defender we have that speaks French.
He’s always been great in a 3, that’s not up for debate.
His freekicks have turned to ****.
Always a super treat to see his long-range freekicks.
At least he gets to call Arteta "Mister" now
If the team is structured and plays well around him he is quite a good player. Once things start falling apart he just starts freelancing and things really go down the drain. Look at him against Germany in the 7-1 loss. He was so out of control it was unreal.
And yes, he is better in a back three but think the main issue is that the team needs to be really compact and structured around him. If not all bets are off.
Glad to see him getting the love he deserves. I like you guys was super worried when he picked up that booking but he didn't put a foot wrong after. It's insane how he goes from looking like a competition winner against Citeh to a top class CB against Norwich and Wolves.
He's giving us more Lucio as of late.. keep it coming David!
What a great leader David Luiz. The derby barely started that he gave away a first chance to the Sp**s. Way to raise confidence in the defense. Also on the first chance of Kane how slow was he to turn ? Incredible.
He just can't run and we have to accommodate his weaknesses by playing 3 at the back.
I really doubt Holding could do worse. Rob is also slow but he is not known for errors leading to goals and he is pretty good with his head which we need for set pieces.
Ah and this is how our defense leader was defending on that corner. Zonal marking is useless if you just end up marking your own teamate.
Very good first half
Won every fvcking header so far
Big block by the Brazilian
Auba may have got the goals but this man was a rock at the back tonight and takes my motm award
His best performance in an arsenal shirt.
As I mentioned numerous times, the board delivered immense value by keeping him for another year.
