A whole host of Arsenal players are being linked with a move away from the club this summer, but which of those do we need to keep?
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka got himself red-carded in today’s narrow 2-1 victory over Burnley, and he has come under criticism for his actions.
The Swiss international arrived from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer, and has already gotten himself sent off twice in the Premier League already.
There have been a few rumours about today which may or may not be confirmed in the near future surrounding Arsenal Football Club.
Reports coming out of France moved to claim that new contracts had been signed by two of our key players, with Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud said to have extended their stays in North London.
Arsenal fans may start to feel that the transfer action at the club is something akin to the London buses that go past the ground, as in you wait for ages and then three come along at the same time. That is if the recent Arsenal transfer rumour about the Roma and Argentina international star Leandro Paredes turns out to be true.
Even though the summer signing Granit Xhaka had probably his best game in an Arsenal shirt since his transfer from the Bundesliga, I thought that Mesut Ozil just edged him as our best player in the draw with Tottenham yesterday. The German did produce the wicked free kick that led to our goal, after all, and Xhaka blaxed a shot over the bar when a pass was the better option.
It is not just the fans of Arsenal Football Club who feel hard done by at times by the football officials in charge of our matches and to be honest I think it is just about impossible to be completely neutral and unbiased when it comes to supporting a team.
When Arsene Wenger gives a press conference ahead of an Arsenal game there is usually one of the players there with him to answer questions from the attendant football media, and it is almost always one of the players that the manager plans to be in the starting line-up for the game.
Although some Arsenal fans and plenty of people in the football press have been hammering the Switzerland international Granit Xhaka for his performance against Swansea City in which he was sent off for a tackle on Modou Barrow, the manager was quick to back his big summer signing.
