‘He needs to be dropped’ – Fans attack Arsenal star after United game
Much of the Arsenal faithful expressed their frustration on social media following the remarkably undeserved 3-1 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.
The Gunners suffered their first loss at the Emirates stadium in the Premier League this season after a 12-game winning streak at their home ground.
Despite a spirited display in attack which saw them pepper the United goal with a whopping 33 shots, Arsene Wenger’s men still ended up on the losing side.
It was certainly a night to forget for Granit Xhaka whose job of protecting the Arsenal back three turned out to be clearly unsuccessful as the Red Devils exposed the home side on the break, scoring three clinical goals.
The Switzerland international has been criticised on a few occasions this season for his erratic form and the bashing definitely continued on Twitter after Saturday’s game…
Xhaka is absolutely clueless. He has 0 awareness of what's around him. Lingard was his man.

Xhaka needs to be dropped for Jack Wilshere. Another disasterclass from him today. Enough is enough.

As much as I like Xhaka, I'm done defending him. He's been wack all season. Poor passing, sloppy defending, doesn't release the ball earlier, leaves too much space etc. He should get dropped next week.

Xhaka should get fined any time he goes inside the final third. Offers nothing and leaves us fully exposed

It's really quite strange that Wenger hasn't dropped Xhaka yet. He and the staff must be pleased with his performances. Maybe I'm analyzing him in the wrong way, but for me Xhaka is among the worst regulars we have.
