Arsenal players David Luiz and Cedric smiles and laughing in reunion with Manchester City pals after Gunners defeat

The full-time whistle that marked Arsenal’s defeat to Manchester City on Sunday sparked a lovely reunion involving David Luiz, Cedric Soares, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, Rodri and Hector Bellerin.

Dias kicked off the group celebrations when he hugged Portugal teammate Cedric, with the centre-back beaming with a smile after his solid display and clearly enjoying some jokes with the Gunners right-back.

Two became three when Bernardo Silva joined the huddle with his compatriots, Arsenal defender David Luiz soon followed, also relaxing with the City pair – who are fellow graduates of Benfica’s academy.
Luiz also seemed to raise the spirits as he pointed out and expressed something whilst shaking the hand of Silva and later embracing Dias.

There was another reunion in the background as Bellerin chatted with compatriot and Spain international teammate Rodri, who was an unused substitute for City today.
