David Luiz insists that Arsenal’s ‘maturity’ is showing

David Luiz claims that our recent performances are a show of maturity, and Arsenal’s team is learning to manage the game better.

The Gunners put a seven-match winless streak behind them at Christmas, and has four wins and a tough draw from their last five, and there is a lot to be positive at present.

We have a nice mix of young and experienced players vying for first-team roles, and even the younger players show little inexperience much of the team.

David Luiz insists that their recent results are a show of maturity, and that we are able to tough it out at times.

“I think this shows our maturity,” he said after the draw with Crystal Palace on Thursday (via BT.com).

“It shows how we understand how some games will go. We know that sometimes the games are going to be tough to score.

“And of course, sometimes we’re not going to win, but I think our team is improving a lot. We understand the management of the game.

“Sometimes the game’s going to be tight like it was against Newcastle in the FA Cup last week, but we were mature enough and we kept calm to win the tie.”

We are now set to take on Newcastle for the second time in nine days, and we will hopefully enjoy a better time than the enduring match in the FA Cup, as we won’t be able allowed 120 minutes of play to clinch the win.

Do our recent performances show a level of maturity?

    I hope this is one of the usual dumb quotes that journos dig up to fill time and space. The only important stat is that Manchester City put four goals past a team we were lucky to draw 0-0. That’s where Arsenal are at Otherwise cut the B.S.

    David Luis should show maturity by moving the ball quickly and stop standing still, pointing and inviting opposition pressure just like in Newcastle fa cup game and against Palace. By attacking the ball in the area you will show experience. By playing the ball to midfielders you will help the team. It’s not all about you!
    Can’t wait for Mari return. Luis can add maturity to the bench and changing room.
