Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has endured a tough start to the 2019/20 season.
He was involved in a row with fans as he left the field in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, which ended in him storming down the tunnel.
Is Granit Xhaka finished at Arsenal?
The Swiss was stripped of the captaincy by manager Unai Emery and hasn’t been seen in a Gunners shirt since.
Doubt remains over whether Xhaka has a future at the Emirates beyond the January transfer window after the fallout with the fans.
Despite this, he was still called up by Switzerland for the games against Georgia and Gibraltar over this international break.
He completed 90 minutes in both and found the back of the net in the 6-1 win over Gibraltar while wearing the captain’s armband.
Even though his relationship with the Arsenal faithful has turned sour over recent weeks and months, plenty of them still recognised his good form in the internationals.
Here’s how some of them reacted to his performances:
Xhaka was awesome
