Arsenal & David Luiz
One of the crazier deals to go through on transfer deadline day was David Luiz’s move from Chelsea to Arsenal.
Just a few months ago, Luiz agreed a contract extension with Chelsea.
However, just before the window closed, Arsenal confirmed that they’d signed the Brazilian.
Luiz has yet to make his debut for Arsenal following his transfer.
Could he feature this weekend against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium?
Frank Lampard: David Luiz ‘hugely important’ for Chelsea
A quote from Frank Lampard in the UEFA Super Cup programme has spread on social media.
The new Blues boss was asked to explain how he planned to coach defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz this season.
In response, Lampard called both players “hugely important” for Chelsea.
One has to assume that Lampard’s interview took place long before the transfer window ended.
Awkward question to Lampard in the programme. I guess they interviewed him before deadline day… pic.twitter.com/yyub6zqtH1

Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties
Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties in the Super Cup on Wednesday.
Adrian was the hero for the Reds, as the newly-signed goalkeeper saved a Tammy Abraham penalty to hand Liverpool their first trophy this season.
Chelsea, who came into the match after a 4-0 defeat at Man United, took the lead in the first-half through Olivier Giroud.
Sadio Mane scored twice for Liverpool, before a Jorginho penalty sent the match to spot-kicks.
