    It means Xhaka is vice captain.

    Yeah, but I do think Xhaka id vice-captain again now. Last season under Arteta he was 3-4 choice.

    Xhaka certainly pings the ball but word to Gabriel who dealt with them all like they were nothing. Its the fear of making a mistake.

    Xhaka is 3rd captain after Auba & Laca I think. When Laca & Xhaka have been on the pitch at the same time - Laca had the armband

    That's the thing. Didn't happen yet this season. And that situation happened in the Carabao. Xhaka ended the game as captain despite Laca coming on.

    good to see he has matured and grown into the leader role. the best thing he did was stick up for the players against the toxic section of the fanbase and gave them the middle finger. Guy stands his ground, and he is winning.

    I have said it many times.
    Xhaka is like He Jordan Henderson at Liverpool.
    We fans have always made fun and not rated him. Even Fergie made fun of his body posture. Saying how his legs are awkward and the way he runs is weird. will never buy him..”. Lol
    But manager after manager that has taken over at Liverpool seem to have gotten to know the guy and trusted him.

    That is the same with Xhaka. We keep pulling our hairs out as fans asking why managers rate him. But Wenger, Emery m, Ljumberg, Arteta etc all seem to rate him. While hyped up so called world class fans favourites like like Özil are frozen out consistently.
    Weird.

    He really isn’t .

    Jordan Henderson is a dynamic box to box midfielder. Xhaka is more like Lucas Leiva.

    Well, a chance to see how we perform without him starting today. Thread will be lively post-game whatever the outcome.

    Imagine getting benched while Elneny starts
    Then imagine what if we sign some actually good midfielders

    Arteta is smart, he's taking him out of the lineup because he was playing like **** for the last two matches, if only Emery had learn that lesson.

    I was thinking the other night it was around this time last year when he was putting in some very poor performances before the clash with the fans.

    It’s rotation. Xhaka is the Swiss captain he will play every minute for them in the break.

    They play against Croatia, Spain and Germany. 3 big games for him in the space of a week!

    He could have been rested in that midweek game instead.
