- The centre-back limped off with a suspected knee injury vs Sheffield.
- Mikel Arteta admits he is worried about Luiz's knock because the Brazilian is a fighter in spirit.
- Our gaffer concedes that the centre-back faces a late fitness test to be available vs Norwich.
David Luiz faces a race against time to be available vs Norwich after Mikel Arteta revealed that the Brazilian might not recover in time after suffering a knock to his knee vs Sheffield United in the cup.
"He was in pain the other day when he had to leave the pitch. He's not a player that normally does that, so he was uncomfortable. We assessed him yesterday and he was a bit better, but we don't know," Arteta told the club's official website.
"He had a scan this morning as well to see how bad it is and he's very willing. He wants to play but he's always like that. We will have to see how he is."
