Arsenal boss Arteta: You can see how Luiz and Xhaka fight for this club

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is delighted for David Luiz after his performance in their FA Cup semifinal win over Manchester City.

Discussing Luiz and Granit Xhaka, Arteta was eager to praise the Brazilian defender.

He stated: "They are two players that are worth spending time with and giving confidence, because I know how professional they are, how much they want to be successful at this football club and how much they care.

"Sometimes when they react or they have difficulties, they really suffer and when that happens, they deserve support and back up.

"They are showing from their performances that they deserve to be here and you can see how they fight for the club."
