David Luiz says Arsenal can battle for the Premier League title this season.
Arsenal defender David Luiz believes that the Gunners will be able to compete for the Premier League this season.
The Brazilian, who tasted the league title success with Chelsea under the management of Antonio Conte in 2017, is optimistic about Arsenal’s competence to fight for every competition this season.
“This club has the potential to shine like it has shone in the past. We have a lot of talent, we have players with a lot of quality,” Luiz said.
“I came here with the ambition to fight for the Premier League title, I want to fight for other competitions also.
“It was like that at the other clubs I have been at but it was not always easy, there were difficult moments.
“I am going to try to do my best every single day and try to help everyone to believe in this because I think this club can believe a lot because it has a lot of potential.
“Football is about the end not the beginning and we are going to have to try to fight to the end.”
David Luiz was on the receiving end after the defender conceded a penalty and allowed Salah to counter-attack in the second half. Despite that, the Brazilian believes that the Gunners can take a lot of positives from the game.
“There is frustration always but I think you also have to be intelligent and mature to understand we did a lot of good things and we could have scored two or three goals before they did,” said Luiz.
“It is always difficult to play there. Not many teams will go there and get points. I think you have to be clever to take the positive things and think about the future.”

“It is not just about me, it is not just about the defenders, it is about the mentality of the team. I think the team already did great against Newcastle, did great against Burnley to understand the kind of game we were playing for.”
