Knee surgery set to keep Arsenal star out of action for a month

David Luiz will be a part of Arsenal’s last games of the season despite undergoing knee surgery recently.

He had to undergo the procedure at the weekend and surgeries normally rule players out for a long time.

The Gunners will play at least 10 more competitive games this season, depending on how far they go in the Europa League and he had been expected to miss those matches.

Luiz has been an important part of their team this season with Mikel Arteta trusting the Brazilian to lead his players from the back.

He is now expected to be without the former Chelsea defender for the next four weeks.

Mail Sport, however, confirms that he will still play some role in Arsenal’s campaign before it ends.

Luiz has been plagued by mistakes all his career, but on his day, the Brazilian is one of the best defenders that the Gunners have.

In his absence, the likes of Gabriel Magalhaes and Pablo Mari will have to step up.

His return to the field before this season ends will also boost his chance of earning a new Arsenal contract.

With William Saliba returning from his loan spell in the summer, they might not need the Brazilian at the Emirates next season.

    Wow! That is a suprise. Looks like MA is out at the end this season. The tail of the season will expose him as I predict us losing to Slavia Prague over two legs and he can’t hide behind anyone. That game against Liverpool showed him for what he is. An inexperienced less than humble manager. It pains me to say this but he doesn’t fit. A Europa League final didn’t save UE so a 10th place and 1/4 final EL should not save MA. New man new spine required. Unforgivable letting Martinez leave and having no backup for Tierney or Partey. More quality required and spend money on Mikhail Antonio and competitive midfielder who wins/ retains the ball . We have no striker like him.

    David Luiz should have been a number 10 with his languid gait his flowing locks his raking diagonal passes. Glen Hoddle and Rud Gullit come to mind.
    Well we can replace one film star player with another by bringing back Matteo Guendouzi 😉
