Arsenal returned to the field against Manchester City Wednesday night after about three months of Premier League suspension.

The Gunners knew they were in for a torrid time after they were pitched with City on their return, but no one could guess that David Luiz would be the player that helped the Citizens out on that night, especially when he was not even in the starting eleven.

The Brazilian was unsurprisingly benched by Mikel Arteta on the night and only came on when Pablo Mari had to leave the game in the first half through injury.

As a senior player, fans would expect him to lead by example as he joined the match, but he was far from that after his error led to the opening goal by Raheem Sterling.

He would then concede a penalty again shortly after the break and be sent off for his troubles.

Understandably, Arsenal fans were very disappointed by the outcome of the game, however, I wasn’t surprised because it really is nothing new from the Chelsea reject.

The former Brazil captain will be out of a contract at the end of this month and I’d be gutted if Mikel Arteta decides to offer him a new deal no matter what.

Luiz will always be Luiz and I think that it is best for us to cut ties with him now rather than enter next season with him.
