Arsenal’s hopes of staying in the English Premier League title race took a major blow Sunday after they failed to beat Premier League new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates, drawing 1-1.
The Gunners have not won any of their matches in November, also drawing against Sporting Lisbon and Liverpool.
It was another sluggish start to a 90 minutes for Unai Emery’s men, with Arsenal now one of only two sides in the top-flight not to be leading at half-time in any of their matches so far this season.
The visitors took the lead early on through Ivan Cavaleiro after midfielder Granit Xhaka, rated as worth £36m by Transfermarkt, failed to control a simple pass, allowing an onrushing Wolves attack to flood the Arsenal box.
It was the kind of error that has defined Xhaka’s career at the club and many fans have now had enough, with some even calling for the player to be sold in the January transfer window.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Hopefully xhaka can sit on the bench to January now then get rid of him 👍🏻 #afc

Torreira is worldclass but he isn’t a magician. Won’t be able to hide Xhaka’s avergae quality for so long. Xhaka needs to go and take is mistakes with him. One good match isn’t enough if you can’t repeat it week in week out. #AFC

I don't care what kind of form xhaka has been in, he hasn't cut it at Arsenal, and I don't think he ever will. #AFC
