Xhaka is Arsenal’s captain now. He’s the man they’re meant to turn to in times of dire need, the one to inspire the team forwards, and an example – in theory – for his teammates to follow.

What his newfound duties definitely don’t entail, however, is going completely berserk at all the wrong times and assaulting players in dangerous areas of the pitch – especially in the north London derby. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a bad player…just a misguided one.
