Arsenal fans on Twitter slate Xhaka after Huddersfield outing

Arsenal fans on Twitter slate Xhaka after Huddersfield outing

There’s no doubting that Granit Xhaka has been a different player this season since being paired up with Lucas Torreira and playing under Unai Emery. However, yesterday he wasn’t at his best. One Arsenal fan account on Twitter tried to wax lyrical over his performance against the Terriers, but couldn’t find many Gunners to agree as they slated the Swiss ace’s performance.

The Gunners did well to scrape a 1-0 at The Emirates yesterday against a stern Huddersfield side who have been in positive form over the last few weeks. It was a Lucas Torreira goal that gave them the winner in the end and Emery will be happy with the result, even if the performance wasn’t up to the same levels as recent ones against Tottenham and Manchester United.

The one man that the fans have been focusing on, though, is Xhaka. The Swiss midfielder was at his very best against Spurs last Sunday, but a booking in that game meant he missed the Manchester United trip. His return yesterday was something the fans were looking forward to, and in truth, he failed to deliver as he was drafted back in by Emery. The next game that the Gunners face domestically is away at Southampton, and they’ll be hoping Xhaka can find top form ahead of that one.

The Gunners were far from pleased with Xhaka and will hope he can up his game ahead of next weekend.
