The experienced Brazilian defender believes that, on the back of a derby win over Tottenham, anything could still happen from here
David Luiz is refusing to give up on Arsenal’s bid to secure a top-four finish, with the Brazilian defender looking for a derby win over Tottenham to act as a springboard.
The Gunners edged out their north London neighbours 2-1 in their latest Premier League fixture, but remain 10th in the table.
A 10-point gap separates them from the Champions League qualification spots, but they still have 10 games to take in and believe anything is possible in a sprint towards the line.
What has been said?
Luiz told reporters of the Gunners’ top-four chances on the back of a morale-boosting victory at home to Spurs: “We have to try and continue in this way, try to improve.
“We are far (off), but we have a great team and we can continue in this way and try to win points every week.”
What does Arsenal’s fixture list look like?
The Gunners are entering a crucial stage of their 2020-21 endeavours.
The second leg of a Europa League last-16 encounter with Olympiacos that Mikel Arteta’s side lead 3-1 is next on the agenda, before then facing another London derby date with West Ham.
Redknapp and Ljungberg disagree over Arsenal captain Aubameyang’s qualities

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp thinks Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not doing enough for Arsenal presently, but Gunners legend Freddie Ljungberg holds a contrary opinion and still rates him as a top player.
Aubameyang was an unused substitute as Mikel Arteta’s side bagged a vital 2-1 win over Spurs in Sunday’s Premier League game.
Last month, Redknapp said the Gabonese striker has ‘pased his best’ after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City but he believes he can do more than he is doing for the team at the moment.
