    I don't know, Andre Santos was beyond awful. Add in the shirt swapping at half time with RvP, I think Santos take some beating as worst Brazilian...

    Andre Santos by far and it's not even close.

    Decent game today and positioned himself in the right places going forward. He is still a big brother to Martinelli.

    Was immense today and probably the man of the match had we kept the clean sheet.

    Arsenal defender David Luiz, speaking to Sky Sports: "I think the first half we were the best team on the pitch, the second half they were better, but we tried to do everything.

    "We have to learn quickly, we are not in the best position in the table. It has not been a good year for us but it is still possible to improve and learn.

    "Mikel Arteta is trying to impose his philosophy on us as soon as possible, we have players with talent, we have players who will be top players in the future and they're trying to learn quickly.

    "But it is up to us get some points now because we need them."

    More from David Luiz on new Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta: "For me he will be one of the best coaches in the world.

    "I am lucky to have have had many good coaches in my career, he is intelligent, he is clever and I think he will be one of the best.

    "But it is part of our job to help him do that. People have doubts but I trust in his philosophy and the way he sees football.

    "He knows football. When you know football it is much easier to explain and understand the head of the players on the pitch. It is not easy for him in the middle of the season, he didn't choose the players, but he will do his best. This amazing club deserves better.

    "That's why we could see Arsenal dominate in the first half with amazing football and quality. We should score a second goal and then it would be a different game. But congratulations to Chelsea. Frank has come in and they're doing what he wants them to do."

    Luiz was very good today. He was a lot more aggressive than earlier in the season. Could be because he was playing against his former club but he was playing on the front foot, going in for headers and staying close to the strikers.

    Was really frustrated earlier with his backing off strikers and unwillingness to challenge properly for headers. He is obviously our best central defender if he keeps performing like this.

    It makes you really wonder whether someone like a Van Dijk would really have made a difference.

    Look how much better and accomplished Luiz and even Sok look in an actual system, I was wondering how Luiz could've been fairly solid for Chelsea and then fall to pieces for us, but it's coming clear that Emery couldn't orchestrate a fking p*ss up in a brewery (to paraphrase Alan Sugar).

    Great stuff.

    He's been good generally since Arteta came in. Amazing what a team with proper structure can do to help the defenders.

    Outstanding again today.

    Can’t help but love this guy. He’s got more than a few errors in him, but when he’s good he’s really ****ing good.

    Was quite critical of him when we first got him, but if he keeps up the ascendancy, the most vocal on the pitch, the most demonstrative, he could easily be front runner for captains arm band, certainly for the short term.

    Not only a great performance but also a Captains performance without actually being Captain!

    Might be worth paying up & getting the French kid back now. Lets see if a partnership there.
