Fans react to David Luiz belief that Arsenal can challenge for the title this season
You cannot fault David Luiz for showing ambition and massive positivity but he has left himself open to ridicule following his claim that Arsenal can challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the title this season.
Speaking to NBC Sports, the Brazilian defender espoused his confidence in Arsenal and their title chances.
“For me, if you start something, and we’ve just started the Premier League and all of the competitions, if you don’t think you can win the competition then you won’t start anything in your life,” Luiz said.
“I want to improve and adapt myself for the style of Arsenal, as a club and how the manager wants us to play. I think we can do that together.
“My vision, my ambition and my will is always to fight for the title and between the club, the players and the coach, we have the possibility to fight for the title. I think this club deserves to shine again.”
Well, that has brought the expected response from many fans. Obviously, most were negative, that is to be expected. However, even I, an avid Arsenal fan, found some of the reaction quite funny.
Luiz must be smoking codeine. Too early for that nonsense

I did actually try to find some Arsenal fans supporting Luiz viewpoint for balance but truth is, I struggled.
Not even Arsenal fans believe that there is any chance of challenging for the title this season. But I respect Luiz for these comments, why can’t Arsenal believe in themselves?
It is unlikely, however, there is nothing wrong with showing ambition and that is all that Luiz is doing.
Put it this way, I prefer Luiz shows positivity and not say we are crap and will win nothing.
