David Luiz, who has already had few examples this season with Arsenal, has once again drawn the wrath of the Gunners’ supporters during the preparation match at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.
After sweeping Charlton (6-0) last Saturday, Arsenal played a second friendly match in an empty Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night against another Championship lineup, Brentford, for a 3-2 loss. Joe Willock and Alexandre Lacazette scored for the formation of Mikel Arteta, 9th of Premier League and which will resume next Wednesday with a terrible shock on the field of Manchester City.
David Luiz did not hold for this meeting (Pablo Mari and Shkodran Mustafi were associated in the center hinge at kick-off) but the 33-year-old Brazilian, who entered at the break, is at the origin of the opposing equalizing goal with a loss of ball in midfield. An ill-advised sombrero attempt that did not fail to wake up Arsenal supporters, who regret the many defensive mistakes of the former PSG player since his arrival last summer.

Auriverde has only signed a year with Arsenal and probably knows that an extension will only give him luxury lining status next season. David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos will alternate in central defense at the end of the season, while William Saliba, recruited for 30 million euros a year ago, will soon join the rotation.
