One Arsenal player features in starting XI of the worst signing of last season

Arsenal didn’t have the best of seasons in the Premier League for the 2019/20 campaign.

They started the campaign poorly under Unai Emery and they never really recovered from that slump.

The Spaniard was fired and eventually replaced by Mikel Arteta, but even the former midfielder’s best efforts were unable to help them finish in the European places on the league table.

Thankfully, the Gunners won the FA Cup, so that helped them to secure a spot in the Europa League for next season.

The club may have fired the manager, but it was the players who ultimately play for the team and their performances are also graded.

Arsenal made some signings in the transfer window ahead of last season and one of them was David Luiz.

The Brazilian was expected to help the Gunners steady their defence, but he seemed to have made it worse.

Sun Sport recently compiled the starting XI of the worst signing from that season and the Brazilian is the only Arsenal player to make the list.

Luiz is partnered in the defence by Craig Dawson. Others on that list include Alex Iwobi who left Arsenal for Everton and Tanguy Ndombele.

The players were all bought for a combined £224million.

      Yea please kindly leave Luiz out of anything you’re saying. This guy commands respect. MA knows best how to manage the team.
      I love Ozil but he keeps making unnecessary headlines for himself and I can’t help it , whatever Arteta is doing is for the best of all parties involved.
      I quote and I really want you guys all to know there’s only a thin line between Win&Lose. Arteta would never go an entire season without a single trophy.
      This is no doubt the best time to be a Gunner

    Shows what the Sun knows. He came cheap; he’ll be a good backup and spot starter long-term; he knows the game and can teach; and he has a winner’s attitude. He looks just fine in a back three, now that Arteta’s had some time with him. And he helped the Gunners get Willian on a free.

      exactly hes experience …a club cant have just under 23 players

      Luiz plays well at certain formations and strategy

    THAT terrible performance was .. terrible
    However, by coming out and taking responsibility showed a man of strong character
    West Islander summed up my feelings too

    David Luiz didn’t deserve to be there. The guy improved since the new manager took over and has been a leader on and off the pitch

  5. RSH says:

    He gave away 5 penalties which is a record. So I wont argue against his inclusion. That said, he’s turned into a much better player after we went into a back 3. Never put David Luiz in a back 4 again please….

      👍
