Arsenal fans want Granit Xhaka dropped for Tottenham clash

Premiership Picks

A number of Arsenal fans have called for head coach Unai Emery to drop Granit Xhaka from his starting XI for the clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Xhaka missed Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Burnley on August 17 with a bruised lower back.

However, the Switzerland international was back for the 3-1 loss at Liverpool on Saturday – captaining the team from the middle of the park.

It does appear that the 26-year-old will be a key player under Emery this season but the Arsenal supporters do not want him in the XI against Spurs.

Indeed, when discussing team selection following the loss at Anfield, many of the club’s fans insisted that Xhaka should not start the North London derby.

The Gunners were much improved in their 3-1 loss at Liverpool at the weekend.

However, there will be pressure on the team to bounce back when they host Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the huge fixture on Sunday afternoon.
