‘Now leave my club’: Some fans want this Arsenal star sold after 1-0 loss
A group of Arsenal fans made their feelings very clear about one player in particular after the final whistle on Monday.
The Gunners were in decent form prior to the international break as they defeated Aston Villa and Bournemouth at home – while drawing away at Manchester United – as well as winning all of their fixtures in the Europa League.
Unai Emery was hoping for more of the positive results as his side made a trip to Sheffield United in the Premier League for the first time in nearly thirteen years.
The clash with the newly-promoted side saw Granit Xhaka receive a start once again, not too long after the manager’s controversial decision to name him as the new captain of the team.
The Switzerland international was withdrawn from the game in the second half and after watching him feature in midfield again, several fans had nothing great to say about the skipper’s performance…
Great effort Xhaka. Now leave my club.

WHAT EXACTLY DO WE NEED XHAKA FOR? To make naive fouls, give the other team momentum? Keep players onside? Get red cards? Hospital passes? Lose the ball? Miss headers and tackles? Blame other players? Torreira is the far better option. #UnaiEmeryOut pic.twitter.com/ucGuIFkCaF

At least Xhaka's utterly pointless foul of the game was outside the box today

Xhaka is without doubt, the worst Arsenal captain ever.#AFC
