It is time that Granit Xhaka put his shooting boots on again

One thing that stood Granit Xhaka out when he first joined Arsenal was his goals from outside the box.

The Swiss midfielder has become one of the most senior members of the Arsenal team and he was even named as the club’s captain earlier in the season.

However, his goals have dried up and perhaps, more importantly, he doesn’t even seem to shoot any more.

Arsenal now relies almost entirely on their attackers to score their goals but that has to change if the team wants to start winning silverware again.

Teams like Liverpool and Manchester City don’t rely on only a player or players from a particular position to get their goals.

The likes of Giorgino Wijnaldum and Rodri have scored important goals for both teams and that is one of the reasons why they remain the top two sides in England at the moment.

Granit Xhaka has a good shot in him and I think he might be struggling with confidence at the moment.

Mikel Arteta has to encourage him to shoot more often as goals from his position is desperately needed by the team.

This break is the perfect time for Xhaka to practice more, he should put some more time into his shooting practice and I think that he would start scoring important goals for us again.

    DOES ANYONE KNOW PRECISELY HOW MANY GOALS HE HAS SCORED FROMOUTSIDE THE BOX,PLEASE? MY IMPRESSION CAN ONLY BE FOUR AT VERY MOST, WHICH IS HARDLY ANY CONSIDERING THE LARGE NUMBER OF GAMES HE HAS PLAYED. I have never rated him at all and fervently hope we can get rid of him before next season , which will though be much delayed now.

    xhaka is not a defensive midfielder and wenger made a mistake to bring him like a long term DM solution ,passing very strong but tackling very weak, ball recovery weak, he is not quick on the ball and surprisingly Arteta has seen him like the best channel to build his carrier, best thing for arteta must bring strong defensive holding mid and also good attacking midfielder and let ozil go please without this I expected for Arteta to suffer a lot even if he can prefer to bring koulibary and Demiral at arsenal this can not save his job and on my side xhaka go back to your bundesliga
