New low for Arsenal…
Arsenal fans have found a new scapegoat after the side’s sloppy defending allowed Watford to score a stoppage time winner in yesterday’s game at Vicarage Road.
Incredibly, footage showed Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka standing around and PICKING HIS NOSE as Tom Cleverley raced into the box to fire home for Watford at the death.

The Switzerland international hasn’t been at his best for the Gunners since joining from Borussia Monchengladbach last season, and his lack of work rate was badly exposed once again in yesterday’s defeat.
While fans so often jump to blame Mesut Ozil after disappointing results, it’s fair to say Gooners were agreed that Xhaka was public enemy number one on Saturday evening.
Here’s a collection of the angriest tweets from Arsenal supporters as they took in their third defeat of the Premier League season…

Granit Xhaka’s picking his nose as Arsenal concede a last-minute goal is surely Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez levels of lethargy.

Watching xhaka standing still for the goal. Had Coquelin been on the field, no way would they have had that final shot.
