first_imgAdvertisement Comment David Luiz accepted the blame for Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester City (Sky Sports)David Luiz has accepted the blame for Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester City and admits he should have made an early decision over his contract situation with the Gunners.The 33-year-old, who was brought on as a first-half substitute for the injured Pablo Mari, was at fault for City’s opening goal as his inability to clear Kevin De Bruyne’s pass allowed Raheem Sterling to score from close range.But it got even worse for Luiz shortly after half-time as he gave away a penalty for bringing down Riyad Mahrez and was sent off in the 50th minute.De Bruyne converted the penalty to double City’s lead before a goal from Phil Foden wrapped up a 3-0 victory for Pep Guardiola’s side.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAfter the match, Luiz insisted on speaking to the media and took the blame for Arsenal’s defeat, whilst he also accepted that he was at fault for allowing his contract situation to run down as his current deal is due to expire at the end of June.‘It’s not the team’s fault. It was my fault,’ Luiz told Sky Sports.
