Mikel Arteta has provided an injury update on David Luiz as Arsenal are preparing to face Dundalk in the Europa League on Thursday. The defender suffered a muscular issue during the Gunners 1-0 defeat to Leicester City.
Speaking about Luiz, Arteta said: "David is still having some discomfort in that area.
"Musti's completely fit to play and obviously the internal contract situations are going to be discussed internally.
"I've been really happy with Musti since I joined and the progress that he's made, the performances that he's made.
"It's true that he has a long term injury and he's worked really hard to get back in that position where he is today and I just want him to show again the trust that we have in him and get the performances that we got in the past from him as well.
I think they were a few cases when we joined in that position. What we tried to do was help the players as much as possible, encourage them to ply with confidence, try to give them the right solutions and then it's up to them to show with their performances where they are."
After facing Dundalk, Arsenal will face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, November 1.
