Granit Xhaka’s mistake for Arsenal in today’s game against Cardiff has some fans absolutely raging at him at half time as they vent their frustrations on Twitter.
In fairness, he’s not the only one in a red and white shirt attracting criticism today, but Xhaka did give the ball away in a vital area in the build-up to Cardiff’s equaliser on the stroke of half time.
Shkodran Mustafi had given the Gunners an early 1-0 lead with a superb headed goal, but that work has been undone by Xhaka’s sloppy midfield play.
This is not the first time the Switzerland international has looked out of his depth at this level, with the former Borussia Monchengladbach man really not looking the part since his move to the club in 2016.
It remains to be seen how many more chances Xhaka will get, but most of these fans want him out of the team as soon as possible after this latest gaffe…
Torreira for Xhaka. Pls!!!!!!
How many times do we give the ball away

Xhaka failing at the main thing he’s supposed to be good at, and costing us yet again. Emery needs to bin him ASAP.
