Interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has been advised to drop defender David Luiz from his starting XI for the upcoming league clash with fellow London side West Ham United.
Freddie Ljungberg was advised by former Arsenal teammate and fellow club legend Martin Keown.
According to the Daily Mail, Martin Keown said that interim Arsenal manager Ljungberg needs to drop David Luiz from his team or switch to a three-man defence because the Brazilian international likes to drop too deep thereby causing problem for the other defenders.
Arsenal signed David Luiz from fellow London side Chelsea in the summer for a fee believed to be around £8m.

David Luiz has played in all but one league game since his arrival from Chelsea in the summer.
The Brazilian international centre back was seen as the man to finally bring calm to the Arsenal defence but the opposite has been the case.
With David Luiz in the Arsenal XI, the team has kept just one clean sheet in 14 league games and that was the Bournemouth game at home.
David Luiz scored the only goal of the game as the Gunners beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium courtesy the first half strike from the Brazilian centre back.
