Granit Xhaka’s undeniable ability has always been undermined by his discipline and rashness.
Able to put the ball on a sixpence, the midfielder’s propensity to fly into a challenge can be infuriating and has proved costly already with yellows and red cards collected this season already.
Today with Arsenal already 1-0 down the Swiss midfielder made his side’s task even harder when he conceded a penalty after a clumsy challenge on Fraser.
Understandably fans were fuming as they look to pick up points and keep pressure on league leaders Chelsea and let their feelings be known on Twitter with a barrage of angry tweets:
I honestly believe that Xhaka is rubbish, always below average and making poor decisions

Xhaka needs to get rid of a couple of Flamini traits from his game!

Xhaka is so rash

Just when I started rating Xhaka he decides to be a fucking idiot

Xhaka often looks so intelligent with the ball at his feet, but without it? Fuck me, he's a madman. Most stupid tackle I've seen in a while

I've lost patience with Xhaka

Xhaka for 30mil, I always said he is too tactically indisciplined to make it in a high-tempo league like the EPL.
Yet to prove me wrong

Can't wait for wenger to leave. Also sorry to state the obvious but Xhaka is a major liability.

Xhaka isn't fit to tie Jack Wilshere's boots

Arsenal now face a monumental task in getting back into the game, a loss and a Chelsea win tomorrow would see the gap between them and their London rivals stretch to a whopping 12 points but would also see the gap between them and chasing Man United close to just 1 point.
