DAVID LUIZ has revealed he wants to stay at Arsenal as the Brazilian took the blame for a horror show at Man City.
The centre-back was at fault for two goals and left Mikel Arteta’s side with ten men after seeing red.
On as a sub, Luiz first misjudged a Kevin De Bruyne pass to allow Raheem Sterling to open the scoring, before bringing down Riyad Mahrez and conceding a penalty.
He was sent off for the foul.
Speaking after the game Luiz, who is locked in a contract dispute, took the blame for undoing what had been an impressive showing until his errors.
He told Sky Sports: “It was not the team’s fault it was my fault. The coach is amazing, all the players did amazing, it was just my fault.
“I should have taken a different decision in the last two months. I didn’t – it was all about my contract.”
Speaking about the “different decisions”, he added: “Different decision to try and decide my future as early as possible but I didn’t.
“I don’t want to use that as an excuse, it was my fault and that is it.
“I love to be here that is why I continue to train hard and that is why I came today.
“Nobody asked me to speak, it is up to me to show my face. I want to stay.
“The coach knows and wants me to stay, we are waiting for the decisions.”
Arteta added: “[Luiz] is someone that is very honest and straight forward.
“My opinion on David Luiz hasn’t changed.
“It won’t change because he had a difficult performance tonight.”
