David Luiz is receiving plenty of criticism from Arsenal fans following the 2-2 draw with Watford. Arsenal blew a two-goal lead against the Premier League’s bottom club at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put Arsenal in command with his first-half double. But individual errors once again came back to bite Arsenal as they let Watford back into the game.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos was the first to make a blunder. The Greek defender gave the ball away inside the box and Tom Cleverley got the Hornets back to within one goal.
And as Watford searched for a late equaliser, they were handed a golden opportunity on a plate by Luiz. The Brazilian, who arrived from Chelsea in the summer, dived into a challenge in the box. He got it wrong and sent Roberto Pereyra tumbling to the deck.
Arsenal fans criticise Luiz
Pereyra dusted himself down and slotted the penalty past Leno to make it 2-2. Then, Arsenal were left to hold onto a draw in the last 10 minutes. Many fans are accusing Luiz of costing them more points.
It has been a difficult start to life in North London for Luiz. Here are some tweets from Arsenal fans discussing his display.
LUIZ IS MUSTAFI IN DISGUISE

I’m dead serious, I want both sokratis and luiz gone in january. Chambers and holding are both miles ahead of the 2, not an opinion but a fact and then buy another cb but get these 2 out. They’ll cost us this season like our cb did last season, get them out asap before its late
