‘We Understood Burnley’s Game Well and Deserved the Points’ Says David Luiz
Arsenal defender David Luiz was delighted to mark his Gunners debut with a victory over Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, a win he felt was well earned.
Arsenal won 2-1 thanks to goals from Alex Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, with Burnley providing stubborn opposition as usual.
Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Luiz said, “It’s never easy against Burnley, they’re a typical Premier League team, it’s always difficult against them.
They fight for the goal, they know how to play direct ball, the second ball, fight for the corners, free-kicks and everything, but I think we understood their game well.
“We make the plan very well, when we had the opportunity to play we play and when we had the opportunity to play long balls behind the back line we did also.
“I think in the end we did very good and we deserved the three points.” But Luiz also confessed that his own side need to improve.
“I think this team has a lot to do, it can improve a lot, and it can fight for other competitions, so we’re gonna go step by step,” he said.
“It’s a pleasure to be here because everybody’s humble, everyone wants to learn and to improve, we want to make this club shine again.”
