‘I’d sell him in January’: Some fans want this Arsenal star sold after Watford show
Several Arsenal supporters took to Twitter to share their views on the performance of Unai Emery’s midfield chief in the draw against Watford on Sunday.
Arsenal were winless in two games, heading into the trip to Watford over the weekend as a few players from the first team squad returned from international duty.
The Gunners have not always enjoyed their trips to Vicarage Road but the fact that Aubameyang was able to score twice in the first half of the game calmed the nerves of the away fans.
It appeared to be a routine victory on the cards for Emery’s men as they held a comfortable lead at half-time, but a lethargic performance after the restart saw them lose control.
And talking of control, Granit Xhaka was handed the task of helping Arsenal control the midfield battle but things simply did not work the way they should have as Watford made a late comeback.
And after watching Xhaka fluff his lines in midfield again, some fans expressed their anger on social media…
DOUCOURE is what we expect XHAKA TO BE !!!👏🏾. I’d sell Xhaka in January & buy DOUCOURE with my eyes closed #WATARS

Granit Xhaka is actually horrific. How on earth does he get picked ? Just think he’s on about 100k a week and they sold Ramsey. Could’ve give him those wages #AverageArsenal

How can people rate Xhaka? he is the midfield version of Mustafi. Awful player.

In my opinion Granit Xhaka is no better than Francis Coquelin. In fact I’d argue Coquelin was better as a holding midfielder and gave away less fouls!

Why is Xhaka our captain ? Why wasn’t he sold in the last window ? Why is Emery’s decision making so poor ? Why is Mailtand-Niles our RB ? Why why why ?

I’d like David Luiz and Xhaka out of the team permanently from now on thanks. And Unai Emery to be sacked if we’re still passing out from the back next week. #WATARS
