After one of the worst performances in Premier Leauge history, David Luiz has managed to secure himself a new one year contract at Arsenal and Ladbrokes have some specials!
Not one to stay away from the limelight, David Luiz has always been a character. Whether its his hair cut, his ambitious forward runs or his diving, Luiz is always spoken about. After two spells at Chelsea and one at PSG, he joined Arsenal in their time of need.
Luiz was brought in as an experienced defender and leader who could help steady them up at the back. Since then, however, he has done just the opposite.
Last week he was dropped from the starting eleven for a trip away to Man City. Many suggested this was down to him not sorting out his contract with Arsenal. However, after 25 minutes he was called upon and Arteta will now wish he wasn’t.
In the space of 27 minutes, he gifted Sterling a goal, gave away a penalty and then received a red card. After the game, he took the blame for the 3-0 loss and Jamie Carragher said he expects that to be the last we see of David Luiz in the Premier League. Arsenal though had other ideas and awarded him with a one-year contract extension…
To celebrate this ridiculous decision, Ladbrokes have a host of David Luiz specials available for next season!
David Luiz 2020/21 Specials
David Luiz To Concede 5+ Penalties Next Season – 5/1
These are a lot of penalties to give away in one season from one player, however, this is David Luiz. The Brazilian has always been a rash defender and loves putting in a challenge. Arsenal doesn’t have the best of defences and Luiz may have to play more than Arsenal fans would like. As he gets a little bit older he will lose some of his pace and a few penalties could well be gifted next season.
David Luiz To Get 3+ Red Cards Next Season – 3/1
David Luiz To Make The 2020-21 PFA Team Of The Year – 100/1
Now, a David Luiz of old would not have been priced at 100/1 to make the team of the year. He was in it back in 2016/17 when he helped Chelsea to win the league. Arsenal fans would love to see this one happen however it’s highly unlikely. He would need to start a lot of games and Arsenal be solid at the back, both of which probably won’t happen!
David Luiz To Score 5+ Premier League Goals Next Season – 5/1
This is one I like the look of. Luiz is a big defender and goes up for corners. He is a handful to mark and could get himself a couple from set-pieces. On top of this, he loves to make bursting runs forward and shooting from range. In Luiz’s defence, when he gets hold of the ball it’s very hard to stop! Luiz also fancies himself as a freekick specialist. He scored a few in his time at Chelsea and isn’t afraid to take the ball of players and have a go himself!
