Arsenal fans were lauding David Luiz after his performance in the 2-1 loss to his former club Chelsea.
The Gunners central defender was at the heart of action yesterday afternoon as he made a mammoth six clearances and blocked two shots over the course of the 90 minutes (via WhoScored).
Following the game against Chelsea, Luiz came out full of praise for head coach Mikel Arteta, who he claimed can go on to be ‘one of the best coaches in the world’ (via The Mirror).
Luiz’s performance saw him earn praise from football.london, who gave him a seven out of 10 rating as they picked out his tidy performance.
The Gunners threw away yet another lead as they extended their shocking run of form to one win in 15 games across all competitions.
Fans were full of praise for Luiz after his performance in the defeat to Chelsea as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Luiz was more than solid today. Shame he had Mustafi next to him all day. With Chambers we’d won

David Luiz was the best player on the pitch today. A week with Mikel Arteta and the rapidly eroding rock of our defence looks decent. Imagine how good Saliba, Holding or another defender could actually look. https://t.co/8tNpJwpfrw

The team is Better, we’re finally playing good football, give Arteta rest of the season to change the team, act in January and summer, get WC players #COYG

David Luiz. He was solid today, if Chambers hadn’t come off I’m sure AFC would have kept a clean sheet. Let’s support these guys.
