David Luiz targets Europa League glory as Arsenal cruise towards knockout stages

David Luiz is targeting European glory this season

Now Luiz, who was part of the Chelsea side which beat Arsenal in the 2019 Europa League final, is keen to experience the same experience in north London.

“I think when you’re a big club you have to think about winning every competition,” he said.

“This competition is no different, we want to do our best and our best is getting to the final and winning.

“We go step by step, it’s always difficult to play against good teams like today, it was difficult. The teams are very good, good shape, good players.

“I think you have to be humble and take it step by step, but the ambition always has to be there.”

Arteta made nine alterations to his team for the game against Molde having changed his entire XI for the 3-0 victory over Dundalk a week ago.

While the Spaniard continues the tradition of using the Europa League for blooding youngsters and giving minutes to his fringe players, he insists those who are tasked with delivering results in Europe are deserving of their chance to shine.

“Obviously it’s a competition that we want to win and we want to play the best players in,” he said.

“Not just play young players because they are young, I want to play players that deserve to play for this football club because we believe that they have the qualities to perform.

“To change teams like that with a lot of new faces, to get that chemistry and cohesion in the team is not easy and they all showed tonight how much they want to play and showed us that they are a real possibility for our team.”
