Furious Arsenal boss Wenger to tug Xhaka in for crunch talks

Granit Xhaka is claimed to be set for crunch talks with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today, following his unnecessary red-card at the weekend.

The Swiss international was sent off against Burnley on Sunday with his side leading the tie 1-0, and his actions have so far been slammed on fans, pundits and the manager alike.

Arsenal transfer rumour round-up – Danilo, N’Zonzi, Liverpool battle?

The winter window is into it’s final week, and Granit Xhaka’s recent actions may well have forced the Arsenal boss to reconsider his current options.

The Swiss international midfielder got himself sent off for the second time this term, raising a huge question-mark over his temperament, and we may well need to shore up our midfield as we look to challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title.

Why have the media got it in for Arsenal?

When Arsenal lost a couple of games in a row just before Christmas we got slaughtered by the football media, even though they were two very tough away games at Everton and Man City, and despite the fact that Arsene Wenger and the lads had previously been on a long unbeaten run and had played some great football and won some big games, like the demolition of their golden boys Chelsea in September.

Will Wenger’s inevitable ban hinder Arsenal title/top four chances?

Arsene Wenger got sent to the stands during the hugely intense ending of the Arsenal Burnley match yesterday, and is likely to be handed an extended ban for refusing to accept the fourth official’s orders.

Late goals prove Arsenal HAVE got Champion credentials

It take an awful lot to win the Premier League title, as we Arsenal fans know all too well after failing to do so for the last 12 years. Quality and consistency are two of the main factors, of course, but involved with those are all sorts of other factors such as how many of the top players a team has to cope without due to injury and other issues and for how long.

Seriously, Would Wilshere start every week if he came back to Arsenal?

Jack Wilshere has been at Arsenal since he was five years old and, like Carl Jenkinson, he is an out and out Gooner. But he finally realised last summer that he was never going to get regular playing time in this camapaign at the Emirates, after missing nearly all of last season through injury and with the increased competition in the Gunners midfield.

Xhaka told not to lose control – then Wenger gets a red card too!

The Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has been warned by Arsene Wenger for his dismissal in yesterday’s Premier League match-up with Burnley.

The Swiss international picked up his second red card of the season after lunging with both feet yesterday, and was deservedly sent to the stands. It’s common knowledge that two-footed tackles are strictly straight red situations, so there can be no complaint with the official’s decision.

Why is every Arsenal game such a drama!

Reckless Xhaka almost cost us the points, again. by Konstantin Mitov

Burnley was an immense drama, AGAIN! And it was an offside goal in the last minute that saved us AGAIN! This time though, we really deserved the win and if we hadn’t gotten it, it would’ve been a real shame. Why? Because we tried to suicide ourselves against a side who scored only their 4th away goal all season against us!
