Arsenal defender David Luiz has taken responsibility for the team’s 3-0 demolition away to Manchester City on Premier League’s return Wednesday night.
Luiz, who came on as a first-half substitute, failed to clear the ball just before half-time and Raheem Sterling fired in City’s opener.
The defender was then sent off after pulling back Riyad Mahrez in the second half to give away a penalty, which Kevin de Bruyne coolly slotted in for City’s second.
Phil Foden sealed the obliteration with the third a minute into the added time.
“It’s not the teams fault, it was my fault,” said the Brazilian after the game, adding that he wants to stay at the club and Mikel Arteta ‘wants me to stay’.
