“Such a horrible player” – These fans call for Arsenal to “sell” star after shocking display against Man City

Some fans have called for Arsenal to sell Granit Xhaka after the Swiss midfielder had a first half to forget against Manchester City.

Raheem Sterling fired Manchester City into the lead with a thunderous solo strike 14 minutes in, with the England international being chosen to start ahead of winger Leroy Sane as the champions begin the defence of their Premier League title.

Xhaka joined Arsenal ahead of Euro 2016, for a fee reported to be in the region of £30m by Sky Sports , and has gone on to make 71 league appearances for the Gunners.

Xhaka has found life in the Premier League hard to adapt to, with his poor disciplinary record and temperament not helping the Gunners in a period where they have needed someone to steady the ship and not ignite the fire.

Check out some scathing tweets towards Xhaka following his 1st half horror show:

Take a look at what former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville had to say on Xhaka:

With the new season starting off on a bad note for Xhaka, his time in the Gunners starting lineup looks set to come to an end once new signing Lucas Torreira is brought into the fold by new manager Unai Emery.
