‘He’s absolutely pathetic’ – Some fans attack Arsenal star after 1-0 loss
Several Arsenal fans took to social media to express their anger towards one of the men who featured in midfield for the Gunners in the dreadful 1-0 loss to West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Arsenal were expected by many fans to go to West Ham and get the result they needed after seeing off Blackpool and Fulham in their last two fixtures.
Unai Emery has been keen on rotating his thin squad over the past two months with several fixtures piling up for the Gunners across all competitions.
One man who did retain his place in the starting eleven was Granit Xhaka, a player whom some fans are still not convinced about.
The Switzerland international’s minor error resulted in the Hammers punishing Arsenal with the opening goal in the second half on Saturday.
And after the game, several Arsenal fans took to social media to hit out at the midfielder…
Granit Xhaka might be the poster child of the spreadsheet merchants, but he is so consistent with sloppy errors. Awful clearance from a captain today. Also showed how poor he is under pressure. No pace at all, very weak, never going to hit the level we need there.

Xhaka should put Kim Kallstrom on the back of his shirt.
