David Luiz: Arsenal need 'to be humble' in their ambitions

Arsenal remain undefeated in 2021, with Saturday's 0-0 draw with Manchester United boosting the Gunners up to eighth place in the Premier League.

The result sees Arsenal extend their unbeaten run to seven league games, although they may be disappointed in not taking more points against a United side that have only won once in their last four matches.

Either way, the Gunners have looked a far better side than before Christmas, and Saturday's draw was the third home league match in a row in which they've held their opponents scoreless. Additionally, the emergence of younger stars like Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka have been a boon to the team, along Saka did not play against United.

While there's a lot to be happy with for Arsenal fans nowadays, the Londoners still have a massive amount of work ahead of them, says defender David Luiz.

"[We] have to try to improve every single day and you have to be humble every day to admit what you need to improve," Luiz told Sky Sports. "I think the boss is doing a great job, the young boys are fantastic, and I think we are starting to create a real team [and] a real atmosphere."

Luiz admits being pleased with the way Arsenal have progressed of late, taking 17 of a possible 21 points during the unbeaten run, but the Brazilian believes his team could do much more.

How high could the Gunners climb this season? The answer is all in the team's attitude, Luiz says.

"As I say I think you have to be humble, because we are far from the first positions," he said. "So we to take a game by game, improving game by game and try to improve and try to improve. And then in the end of the season we're going to see how far we can go. The ambition has to be there."

He added: "The ambition is to be there, to be fighting for the first position — the ambition has to be there. I never start something in my life without ambition. I think until the moment it's mathetically impossible [to win the league], you have to try. We have to try our best and try winning game by game. This is what we have to put in our minds every single day."
