David Luiz spent just 25 minutes on the pitch in Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat at Manchester City, taking the blame for the opening goal before being sent off.

Luiz came on as a substitute for Mikel Arteta’s side following an injury to defender Pablo Mari in the 24th minute.

A mistake by the Brazilian led to Raheem Sterling’s opener.

He was then shown a red card for bringing down Riyad Mahrez in the penalty area shortly after the start of the second half.

I felt for David Luiz after his nightmare against Man City. I said to him after, “I won’t lie, you properly Woodgated it out there tonight. You need to pick yourself up for the next game.”
He said, “I’m Guendouzi.”
I said, “That’s the spirit, son.”
