David Luiz has insisted that he is ready to help Arsenal challenge for the Premier League title once again.

The Brazil international has been settling into life at The Emirates after having signed for the Gunners from Chelsea FC in the summer transfer window.

David Luiz was at fault for two of Arsenal’s goals in their 3-1 loss to Liverpool FC in the Premier League on Saturday but he is likely to remain as a first-choice centre-half under Unai Emery.

Arsenal’s main target will be to break back into the top four this season after they finished in fifth place and without a trophy last term.

And the 32-year-old seems to be confident that the Gunners will be able to start challenging for major trophies in the coming years.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, David Luiz said: “This club has the potential to shine like it has shone in the past. We have a lot of talent, we have players with a lot of quality.

“I came here with the ambition to fight for the Premier League title, I want to fight for other competitions also.

“It was like that at the other clubs I have been at but it was not always easy, there were difficult moments.

“I am going to try to do my best every single day and try to help everyone to believe in this because I think this club can believe a lot because it has a lot of potential.

“Football is about the end not the beginning and we are going to have to try to fight to the end.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they take on local rivals Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates.

The Gunners are currently in third place in the Premier League table after three games of the new campaign.
