No Means Yes
Xhaka's got his strengths for sure. Underrated player to be honest, when he's on his game he can be brilliant. Not sure whether he's better than Phillips, they are similar players, maybe Xhaka the better passer and Phillips the better ball winner.Last couple of years he’s missed a lot of time through injuries.
Xhaka is an Ironman but ends up missing games through suspension. As all round players I’d take Xhaka all day long.
For Xhaka though it's the errors that count against him. Maybe it's just perception, but I'd see Phillips as an upgrade because of that alone.
