Arsenal’s David Luiz records hat-trick of errors in 25-minute appearance vs Man City
Arsenal defender David Luiz made an error leading to a goal, conceded a penalty and got sent off in a horrendous 25-minute cameo against Manchester City this evening.
The Brazilian hadn’t even started at the Etihad Stadium, but came on as a substitute in the 24th minute following an injury to Pablo Mari.
His error in stoppage time at the end of the first-half resulted in Raheem Sterling scoring the opening goal. Luiz failed to clear the ball, allowing the England international to break the deadlock.
He then conceded a penalty in the 49th-minute for hauling down Riyad Mahrez. The former Chelsea man was shown a red card because he had denied a clear goalscoring opportunity and had not been attempting to play the ball.
Kevin De Bruyne converted the resulting spot-kick to give City a 2-0 lead.
