One Arsenal star features in the Premier League’s worst transfer of the 2019/2020 season starting XI

The just-concluded Premier League season was one of the most eventful one in recent memory.

Apart from the coronavirus pandemic that made sure it became the longest league season since the Premier League began, there were some players who gave comical showings for their teams.

Some of these players only joined their team last summer and you may argue that they need time to adjust.

However, there are others who joined a new team, but they have been playing in the English top-flight for a long time now, yet had an underwhelming campaign.

Sun Sports came up with a starting XI of new signings who flopped for their team this season and Arsenal’s David Luiz featured.

The Brazilian is a Premier League veteran after having two spells with Chelsea, and when Arsenal managed to convince him to move from their London rivals last summer, it was seen as a major coup.

The Gunners needed an experienced head in their defence as they continued to struggle and the Brazilian was signed to bring stability, but he brought even more trouble than the club had before.

He gave away just three penalties as a Chelsea player, however, in his single season at the Emirates, he gave away 5 penalties to feature in that starting XI.

    Flop he may or may not be but he walked away with an FA CUP medal. Big game player or flop. Look in his trophy cabinet.

      Yes a medal, and Giroud in his back pocket.. 😄 Nice one, Reggie 👍

      I’m gobsmacked that Saka hasn’t been nominated for Young poty….
      Mount, Grealish, Henderson, Pulisic, Rashford, Martial (!), Greenwood and Alexander Arnold….. bit bloody obvious where it’s heading!!!

      1. Godswill says:

        That’s why it will not be good for Saka to choose England over Nigeria.

      2. Val says:

        all of those players had a much bigger impact with their clubs than Saka, I’m sorry but if thats the list then he shouldnt be on it

        1. Sue says:

          Not being funny but Martial and Grealish are both 24! Not like they’ve just broken into the first team, is it? Same with Rashford. Seems like they’ve been around for ages!!
          I’m not saying Mount and Greenwood aren’t worthy, but Saka is just 18.. that’s young to me! He’s just broken into the first team and hasn’t disappointed….

          1. Val says:

            yea but isnt the Ypoty award 23 and under from the start of that season?
            Rashford is 22 is that not young in your eyes?
            the trouble is Sue is that you have been seeing Rashford playing since 15/16 season.
            But all of those players nominated ( i just looked ) are worthy of a nomination.
            Don’t get me wrong, Saka has impressed me this season, just like many of you but although he was decent when he did play, he wasn’t exceptional like Mount or AA or Pulisc which is why he wasn’t nominated.
            But that doesnt mean that he can’t get it next season

          2. Sue says:

            I didn’t mean 22 isn’t young.. I meant he’s been around the block! Is younger than 24 though!
            I saw that about the age rule.. but to me, some players are half way through their career at 24.. Grealish had been a regular in that Villa team for an age. Same with Martial/United! So I think the rules should be changed.

    Who was rest of team out of interest
    Going to work on mine now lol
    Got to be Newcastle striker (forgot his name )and Solanke up front

    1. Sue says:

      Joelinton and Iwobi made it!! 😄 Click on the ‘sun sports’ in the article to see the team…

  3. Val says:

    why would Saka be in the Young team of the year?
    He made 26 Premier league appearances
    1 goal 5 assists.
    7 of those were as a sub and 9 times he didnt complete 90 mins.
    If you say that those stats are better than that of greenwood or mount then i just dont know what to say
