Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that David Luiz won’t be available for the Premier League clash at Chelsea tomorrow.
The Brazil international returned after a month lay-off to face Newcastle United, but he picked up a hamstring injury in the first half.
He subsequently missed the games against Villarreal and West Bromwich Albion, and is set to miss the reunion with the Blues.
Speaking in a press conference, Arteta said that Luiz is still nursing a hamstring concern, and hinted that he won’t return for the derby.
They have the chance to do the league double over the Blues for the first time since the 2003/04 campaign, when they last won the title.
