David Luiz might have played his last game as an Arsenal player as he limped out of action at St James Park against Newcastle United after sustaining some form of a hamstring injury.
Given there are just four games left of what has been a dismal domestic campaign for the North Londoners, it looks as if the central defender has played his last game for the club after boss Mikel Arteta bemoaned Luiz’s luck on the injury front.
The Arsenal manager was asked whether the incident spelled the end of the Brazilian’s season, to which he said: “We don’t know. He felt something in his hamstring so it’s not good news.
“He’s put such a shift to be back with the team for the last few weeks after the knee surgery and it’s a real shame.”
The Gunners did well to dispatch of Newcastle comfortably, goals from Mohamed El Neny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough to hand Arteta’s side their eights away win of the season – double last campaign’s total.
Luiz is out of contract in the summer, and reports suggest Arteta is not intending on extending the former Chelsea man’s two-year stint at the Emirates.
