David Luiz urges Arsenal to keep faith in their philosophy.
Arsenal centre back, David Luiz, believes the Gunners should maintain their belief in their current system after it came under renewed attacks.
Arsenal lost their last league game at Sheffield United and almost got beaten in the very next game against Vitoria Guimares at home in the Europa League.
This has made a number of fans and observers to call for a change of tactics and manager, but Luiz believes it’s too early to panic.
The former Chelsea defender who joined Arsenal this season was quick to point out that they have lost just two games this season despite many claiming they have their tactics all wrong.
He is also of the belief that it isn’t how a team starts a season that counts but how they end it. So he encouraged everyone to keep faith in their philosophy and see how good it will be for them at the end of the season.
Arsenal have to be honest
“We have to be honest about what went wrong, but we also have to be calm,” the 32-year-old told Soccer Saturday.
“It’s only our second defeat this season. We are doing many things well.
“We have to keep believing in our philosophy, we have to keep believing in our team, which is the best way for us to improve.
“Football is about the end, not the beginning, so let’s see how we finish at the end of the season in May.”
Arsenal missed the chance to go third on Monday but remain within the region that challenges for the Champions League spots.
They will host Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon. It was this Palace side who defeated them at the Emirates last season and all but ended their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
Palace has already beaten Manchester United this season and will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing 0-2 at home to Manchester City last time out.
