Arsenal picked up a morale-boosting victory as they beat Premier League champions Liverpool 2-1 last night with a solidd performance that helped their push for a European spot.
Despite going 1-0 down following a goal from Sadio Mane, Arsenal’s defence seemed to strengthen as the game went on, and David Luiz looked good in the middle of a back five. The Brazilian made six clearances, blocked two shots and made one tackle and one interception, per SofaScore.
Following the result, the Brazil defender posted on Instagram to celebrate, with some supporters of the club congratulating him on his performance. The picture is of him grappling and winning an aerial battle against Virgil Van Dijk, accompanied by the caption: ‘Strong opponent but we did a great job ! Fight spirit and humility!!! Let’s keep improving ! Well done lads 💪🏻’
It’s understandable to see why Luiz’s Instagram post may go down well with Arsenal supporters but they will now hope for the Gunners to win both of their final Premier League games as they face relegation-battling duo Aston Villa and Watford.
They also have an FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City coming up on Saturday and the victory over Liverpool should give them a lot of hope that they can go and beat Pep Guardiola’s side, just as they did at a similar stage in 2017.
