We all know the David Luiz life cycle at this point. Make a huge mistake, recover, impress, score a stunning goal and finally revert back to step one.
And Liverpool can thank their lucky stars that the mercurial Brazilian is at the start of that cycle right now, as he has struck a wonderful free-kick in at Anfield before, but he looked dazed and confused on Saturday evening.
After a dominant performance from the hosts in the first-half, Unai Emery was probably pretty comfortable with the score only at 1-0, but his £8m summer signing then gave away a penalty for an obvious tug on Mohamed Salah’s shirt.

Salah converted in fine style, and it wasn’t long before he skipped away from Luiz a second time before finishing even more impressively to make it 3-1.
This image sums up Luiz’s afternoon perfectly, as he was on the wrong side of the referee’s favour and was simply left in the dust by Salah on multiple occasions.
He couldn’t deal with the Liverpool forward, and his apparent bemusement in the image above practically screams ‘HELP’.
Arsenal fans had better hope he recovers quickly and moves onto the next stage of his cycle before the clash with Tottenham next weekend.
