Some Arsenal fans left surprised after statistic about David Luiz emerges
Some Arsenal fans were left surprised after a statistic emerged about soon-to-be departing defender David Luiz from the Gunners’ disastrous season.
According to Tom Worville, the Brazilian is yet to be dribbled past in the Premier League this campaign, a record he shares with Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, who managed the feat back during the 2018/2019 campaign.
It recently emerged that the defender will leave the north London giants at the end of the term after deciding to move on following the expiration of his contract. According to David Ornstein, had the Reds attempted to offer him a new deal, Luiz would’ve rejected the offer in search of a new challenge.
The stat is a far cry from the player Arsenal supporters first saw back in 2019 when the 34-year-old joined the club from Chelsea. Luiz endured a disastrous start to his Arsenal career, giving away numerous penalties and collecting red cards like stamps.
However, he has since improved his form as proves to be one of the outfit’s best options in the centre of defence, even leading the team to FA Cup glory against his former club last season.
Here are how some fans reacted to the stat…
Incredible. Losing Luiz this summer is a massive problem for us

This is quite impressive from someone who made a name for his kamikaze defending.
