City pipped Liverpool in the end by a point with the Reds finishing 25 points clear of third-placed Chelsea.Luiz, a Premier League winner with Chelsea in the 2016-17 campaign, is aiming high, though, and insists that Arsenal have the players and coaching staff to ‘fight’ for the title.ADVERTISEMENT Comment ‘I think we’ve started really well and we just lost one game in the Premier League,’ Luiz added. ‘I think the team is improving and now we are in third in the table but we want to finish this season fighting for the title.’Luiz joined Arsenal from Chelsea on transfer deadline day and has quickly established himself as a key member of Unai Emery’s side, featuring eight times and scoring the winner during the 1-0 win over Bournemouth prior to the international break.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
