“Freekick Like A Penalty”: David Luiz open up on celebrating after blocking Fernandes’ freekick

Arsenal defender David Luiz has open up on his celebration after blocking Bruno Fernandes’s freekick in their goalless draw against Manchester United at the Emirates on Saturday evening.

Bruno Fernandes stepped on to attempt a freekick in a dangerous position but couldn’t go past the Arsenal wall where Brazilian David Luiz was there to clear. The former Chelsea player took time to praise the Manchester United star labelling him as “one of the best players in the league”, before mentioning how important his block was.

“Bruno is amazing, he’s one of the best players in the league… a free-kick in this position is like a penalty… and I was focused and I could save the goal.”
United’s failure to secure maximum points now leave them 3 points adrift league leaders City.

Meanwhile David Luiz will hope to continue his impressive form for a 9th placed Arsenal as they continue their fight for a place in next season’s European football showpiece.
