Luiz was sent off early in the second half after bringing down Riyad Mahrez in the penalty area.

The Brazilian’s sending off summed up his error-strewn return to action and he was bold enough to admit his role in the crushing defeat.

Notably, he was responsible for City’s first goal as a misjudged ball allowed Raheem Sterling in behind to power a shot past Bernd Leno, who had made a string of crucial saves to keep the match level earlier.
