“He’s bristling with authority” Arsenal correspondent praises much improved midfielder

The evolution of Granit Xhaka has impressed the football journalist James Benge in this campaign, and the Swiss midfielder was in fine form as the Gunners beat Brentford 3-0 this afternoon.

In the absence of Martin Odegaard, Xhaka wore the Gunners’ armband, and he was in great form.

He influenced the game with his passing range and leadership skill, which sets him apart from others.

Benge watched as he did well, and he praised the midfielder afterwards.

In a tweet from his account, he wrote:

“The level at which Granit Xhaka has been playing today and in the last few weeks! From the telling moments right the way down to the little things like shepherding the ball out for an Arsenal throw there, he’s bristling with authority.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mikel Arteta has unlocked a new level of high performance from Xhaka with his new role at the club, and he is thriving.

This is the Xhaka we have always wanted to watch, and we expect him to get even better.

The midfielder’s career at the club has been hot and cold. If he stays this consistent, he could lead the team to win the league title.

  1. Yes. Why not? Xhaka can among his fellow Gunners in the team help lead the Arsenal team this season to win laurels for the club. Which can include that of the EPL title as well.
    As a matter of fact, going by the dominant in games way that Arsenal are playing in the EPL since the campaign has begun, it’s no gain saying to say, if the Gunners sustained their current performance level in the EPL this season. And up it to the greater height in it up to season’s end. A quadrupled of trophies title wins will be theirs waiting for them to lift them.

  2. Xhaka on form is an inspiration to all his team mates. He has incredible skill and his commitment is never in doubt. We can put up with the yellow cards because it’s part of all or nothing style of play but please Mr Arteta find a replacement for Partey whose many mistakes have been calamitous for us. He’s a nice guy but not up to standard.

    1. Partey whose many mistakes have been calamitous? Are u having a laugh mate? Because u can’t be thinking straight with that comment

  3. Ridicule and written off on countless occasions.

    This is one player am truly happy for, you can wet your bread now son.
