‘Surely He Needs To Be In The Team’ ‘Better Him Than Mustafi’ Arsenal Fans Call On Emery To Start New Signing Straight Away

Arsenal only signed David Luiz from Chelsea on Thursday, but with the club’s defensive problems, quite a few Gunners supporters would like manager Unai Emery to start the Brazilian against Newcastle this afternoon.

The 32-year-old has barely had time to meet his new teammates after his transfer was confirmed just a few days ago but fans on Twitter believe it would be the right call to start him at St James’ Park:


It will be interesting to see if Luiz does indeed make his debut today. With Laurent Koscielny having departed the club, and Rob Holding out of action, Emery only has Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi as his other options to partner Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

The game against the Magpies will likely be tricky game to navigate so perhaps Luiz’s selection alongside the Greek international would be the best choice. Supporters won’t have to wait long to see what the manager decides.
