Brazilian defender David Luiz has had a mixed start to his career at Arsenal since last summer when he joined from London rivals Chelsea in an £8m deal.
The experienced centre back started his Arsenal career poorly but he has improved a bit since new manager Mikel Arteta was appointed in December 2019 just like his other teammates.
David Luiz has conceded three penalties in the Premier League this season which is more than any other player in the competition including one in his last game at Chelsea.
He was sent off for a professional foul on Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham midway into the first half but the rest of his Arsenal teammates battled on to secure a point via a 2-2 draw.

The recent arrival of Spanish centre back Pablo Mari could provide David Luiz with the ammunition he needs to take his game to a premium level at Arsenal.
The 26-year-old has joined the Gunners from Brazilian Serie A club Flamengo on loan till this summer after transforming their defence.
He was a key player as Flamengo won both the Brazilian Serie A title and the COPA Libertadores title.
Pablo Mari is vocal and an effective organiser which could work well with David Luiz at the heart of the Arsenal defence when the Spaniard gets up to full speed fitness-wise.
