Injury update: David Luiz’s left thigh injury and return timeline

David Luiz went off vs Leicester City over the weekend with a left thigh injury and the team’s only avenue of consistent distribution went with him.

Yesterday, manager Mikel Arteta provided a brief update on Luiz’s injury and status. Based on that information, I explained Luiz’s possible injury, return timeline, and what it means for the Arsenal centerbacks, namely young William Saliba.
