‘Shocking’, ‘Sell In January’ – Some Fans Destroy Arsenal Star After Drawing With Wolves
Some Arsenal fans have destroyed Granit Xhaka on social media after his horror mistake gifted Wolves the lead at the Emirates this afternoon.
Some Arsenal fans have destroyed Granit Xhaka on social media after his horror mistake gifted Wolves the lead during a 1-1 draw at the Emirates this afternoon.
Xhaka has split opinion among the Arsenal fanbase since joining the club from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 as his ability on the ball is clear and he’s important to our build-up play but his lack of concentration and defensive awareness has caused us too many problems in recent seasons.
Xhaka has been an integral part of Unai Emery’s starting eleven this season having featured in every Premier League game so far and the Swiss international had been enjoying some good form in recent weeks.
He’s been solid in the middle of the park and was largely praised for his performance during our 1-1 comeback draw with Liverpool at the Emirates last weekend so it seemed he may have turned a corner under Emery.
However, the Xhaka of old was on display this afternoon as he totally switched off to allow a routine pass from Lucas Torreira to go straight past him and it allowed Wolves to break and open the scoring through Ivan Cavaleiro from close range.
The defending was poor but Xhaka’s error was ridiculous and understandably some fans took to social media to slam the Swiss star for his latest gaff with one labelling it ‘shocking’ while others demanded the midfielder is sold in January.
Some fans pointed out this isn’t the first time Xhaka has cost us a cheap goal as he’s unable to concentrate for the full 90 minutes while one supporter claimed he’s a ticking time bomb.
Luckily for Arsenal, Xhaka’s mistake didn’t lead to our first loss in 16 games as Henrikh Mkhitaryan snatched a late 1-1 draw to earn a barely deserved point.
