Xhaka for Arsenal in the Premier League:

Penalties conceded - 5

Total errors leading to a goal - 11
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do you blame only our appalling second goal we concede. What about the first? Why do we need to go behind in the first place. Put us on the back foot.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Xhaka was also out jumped by Kane for the first goal!?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
No, that was Sokratis in midfield who also is to blame for that first goal
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes sokratis was also at fault but Xhaka should not be outjumped that easily by Kane no?

And the man I wanted out of our starting line-up was MOTM. Bravon Gwendouzi

Pepe was so threatening and carried the ball so well, but his decision-making in the final third was horrid. We could have won that game if he had more composure.

First goal was Sokratis and in the end Leno's fault. I would have kept that out to be honest.

If xhaka jumps for the ball with more conviction he wins the ball or at the very least stops Kane from knocking its forward.

Jose keeps going on about how Arsenal got a goal back before half time in his last visit to Emirates in December 2017. He's wrong though we scored early in the 2nd half to get a goal back but eventually lost 3-1. Not sure how he can't remember that!

Man....that can happen. Sokratis position and not winning his challenge was key in the first place. Then Leno did the rest.

Xhaka panicks very easily and unnecessarily. Unfortunately he plays in a critical area where you should never panick. Most of his tackles are clumsy fouls, and he could have easily got a second yellow. He is not a derby player.

He is a DERBY player......just not Arsenal standard !
