Arsenal fans don’t want Granit Xhaka to start against Newcastle

Arsenal will look to bounce back from a disappointing week when they host a struggling Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday, and Gunners fans don’t want Granit Xhaka to start in midfield.

The north London outfit picked up successive draws away against Southampton and West Ham United in the last week, but those results saw them drop down to seventh in the Premier League table and they are now one place below and one point behind Burnley.

Xhaka has been a mainstay in the middle of the park this season, but his belo-par performances have come under scrutiny from the Emirates Stadium faithful in recent weeks.

Even though his midfield partner Aaron Ramsey will be absent against the Magpies because of a hamstring injury, Arsenal supporters still don’t want the Switzerland international to take his place in the team.

While one said he “has to be dropped today”, another went further and said “if Xhaka starts then it could be a draw or a Newcastle win”.
