Fans react to Granit Xhaka’s performance vs Man City
The Arsenal fans have given their reactions to the performance of Granit Xhaka in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Manchester City.
Arsene Wenger’s men threw away a 1-0 advantage for the second time in only a week as second-half goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling denied them all the points at the Etihad stadium.
Sunday’s match saw Granit Xhaka keep his partnership with Francis Coquelin in midfield as Arsenal continue to deal with the absence of Santi Cazorla.
The Switzerland international was charged with the task of stopping the threat of Pep Guardiola’s crew in the middle of the park which had Yaya Toure back in the line-up.
However, most of the fans appear to not have been impressed by the performance of the 24-year-old this weekend.
And here were the tweets…
Think this indicates that, at the most elite level, Xhaka alone as a ballplaying CM isn't enough. Need another beside him.

Xhaka needs to piss off. He's been nothing but a traffic cone for us. Same with Özil, Monreal, and everyone besides Alexis and Cech.

Critique Xhaka all you want, but even a prime Alonso wouldn't have done any better today. Issues are systemic as many have noticed.

Not a knee-jerk, but there's no way in hell anyone can convince me that Coquelin/Xhaka/Elneny are anywhere near as good as a fit Ramsey.

Xhaka scored 2 shots from range, he immediately drew comparison with Scholes and Gerrard. Deluded lots.

And from a fan of a rival club…
Those Arsenal fans who said Granit Xhaka was better than Paul Pogba must be waiting for the ground to swallow them up 👀
