Granit Xhaka: Xhak Of All Trades

Trailer painted him as wisely taking responsibility for his red card but no, he was blaming the frontline.

He actually wanted them to thank him for his sacrifice, Mustafiesque stuff.

He was right though. And he did take the blame for them.

Did well today but lost the ball a couple of times which lead to a Leicester attack. Fofana almost scored from one of those. It happens at least once every single game and he's just not learning and that's why i dont want him starting the majority of them.

Another great display by Granit Xavi 😎

A goal, an assist and a dominating display in an advanced position which allowed him to press high up the pitch, make some good runs and his linkup play with Zinchenko and Martinelli was phenomenal at times.
 
Usual performance from him. Plays well but still has ricket in him by getting caught for fontana's chance. He did well, but for me he lacks close control when he gets in the opposition box. Still think we can improve there, or maybe put Viera in that position. But the left hand side looks great.
You can also tell he is still effectively the captain the way he was leading the team talk in the huddle before the match started

Also worth mentioning how in sync Xhaka, Zinchenko, and Martinelli are looking already down that left hand side. I was really impressed how they continuously switched positions. They have a great understanding which will cause big issues for opponents.
 

Arsenal Quotes

I knew we were very different, that he (Ferguson) had a total hold over his club while at that time I was still more of a coach. I also recognised his huge qualities. He knew how to surround himself with the right people and didn't rest on his laurels when he was successful.
