Seriously? Arsenal and Man United fans react to Granit Xhaka’s performance vs Sutton
Granit Xhaka received mixed reviews once again for his performance in Monday’s FA Cup clash with Sutton United.
The Gunners secured a place in the quarter-final of the competition courtesy of goals from Lucas Perez and Theo Walcott.
Monday night’s affair also saw Granit Xhaka play his first game in domestic football since the sending off against Burnley.
The Switzerland international’s form has been erratic in recent weeks after a commanding start to the season which saw him score back-to-back long-range strikes against Nottingham Forest and Hull City.
Those goals helped spark the ‘Pogba vs Xhaka’ debate and while Arsenal fans were only speaking about the 24-year-old’s display, United fans had their own banter for the midfielder.
It may have [only] been Sutton United but Xhaka's performance was mature and excellent. Was very composed in a new environment.

Anyone remember when Arsenal fans claimed that Granit Xhaka was better than Paul Pogba? Good times.
