Arsenal fans enjoyed much improved performance from Granit Xhaka vs AC Milan

Arsenal produced an excellent performance away to AC Milan on Thursday night to take a 2-0 aggregate lead in their UEFA Europa League Last 16 tie.

First half goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey gave the Gunners a victory that will ease fans’ concerns after a series of poor results in domestic competition.

The two away goals make them massive favourites to progress into the quarter-finals of the competition in next Thursdays second leg at the Emirates.

Fans were delighted with the performance and result, offering particular praise to under-fire midfielder Granit Xhaka, who many believe was the man of the match.

Xhaka has been criticised a lot in recent weeks and months but his disciplined performance in Italy impressed, bossing the midfield area and supplying his more creative teammates.

Can he maintain that level this weekend in the English Premier League when the Gunners take on Watford?

Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
