David Luiz claims Arsenal can challenge Liverpool for the PREMIER LEAGUE this season

Arsenal are capable of mounting a challenge to league leaders Liverpool for the Premier League crown this season, according to David Luiz.

The centre-back, a new arrival at the Emirates this season, believes the club are good enough to compete for trophies – including the title – and is optimistic that Arsenal are going in the right direction under Unai Emery.

The Gunners are sitting in third in the Premier League table and trail leaders Liverpool by nine points, although they are just one point behind last year’s champions Manchester City

The Brazilian was signed from Chelsea, where he won five trophies across two spells.

And the 32-year-old’s winning mentality means he always has a belief that his side can win any competition they are competing in.

‘For me, if you start something, and we’ve just started the Premier League and all of the competitions, if you don’t think you can win the competition then you won’t start anything in your life,’ he told NBC Sports.

‘I want to win titles with Arsenal. I want to improve and adapt myself for the style of Arsenal, as a club and how the manager wants us to play. I think we can do that together.’

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since 2004, when Thierry Henry led the famous Invincibles side to glory without a single defeat.

But Luiz feels a change is coming at the Emirates and wants to see Arsenal battling for top honours once again. 

‘My vision, my ambition and my will is always to fight for the title and between the club, the players and the coach, we have the possibility to fight for the title. I think this club deserves to shine again.’ 

Liverpool have won all eight games so far this under Jurgen Klopp, but head to Manchester United on Sunday – a game Luiz and co will be keeping an eye on. 

The Gunners will travel to Bramall Lane on Monday night to play Sheffield United away, a must-win game if they are to maintain pressure on the top two.
