David Luiz was trolled by Chelsea fans after the Arsenal star was sent off during the Gunners’ Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge. The Brazil international, who quit Chelsea for Arsenal in the summer, was given his marching orders after bringing down Tammy Abraham while he was last man.
The Blues were awarded a penalty and Jorginho slotted past Bernd Leno in the 26th minute.
And Chelsea fans took to social media to troll their former player after Luiz’s red card.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “David Luiz is Chelsea through and through #CHEARS”
Another added: “Luiz the new Chelsea agent.”
“DAVID LUIZ hahaha,” a fellow Chelsea fan said.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “DAVID LUIZ, CHELSEA LEGEND”
“David Luiz red card. Jorginho converts the penalty. Chelsea 1 – 0 Arsenal. Poetic justice,” another said.
Arsenal could be busy this month before the transfer window shuts.
The Gunners are hoping to sign a new defender with Arteta short of options at the back, especially after Calum Chambers’ injury.
And Arsenal hero Charlie Nicholas has urged Arteta to sell Granit Xhaka and reinvest in the Gunners’ defence.
Nicholas told Sky Sports: “It is awkward watching Arsenal [against Sheffield United] and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is still out too.
“You miss his goals but his pace and movement too, which makes the opposition have to defend 10 yards deeper.
“It also creates space for Mesut Ozil. I think Gabriel Martinelli is going to be a star and a real goal-getter and eventually he will be a number nine.
