Arsenal: David Luiz backs ‘amazing’ Bernd Leno after Europa League blunder

“He is great and he gives us the opportunity to play from the back and try to help us.”

While Arsenal were considered favourites to win Group B when the draw was made at the start of October, Arteta’s side made heavy weather of their first outing.

They host League of Ireland champions Dundalk next week, with Luiz pleased to have already come through a stern test in Vienna.

“It was a difficult game against a fantastic team,” he added.

“They played with a lot of intensity and I think it was good for us to start like that so we can really understand what is going to come for us in the future.

“Well done for them but also well done for us because we kept calm, kept control of the game in the second half and found a way to win the game.”
