Arsenal’s Xhaka and team-mate Shaqiri set to endure FIFA wrath after political outburst

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri are set to face repercussions for their celebrations in Switzerland’s 2-1 win over Serbia last night.

The Swiss overturned an early goal from Newcastle striker Aleksandr Mitrovic to come away 2-1 victors in the World Cup group stage match-up last night, leaving them in pole position to qualify from Group E.

Arsenal urged to keep balance with Wilshere stay

Granit Xhaka has urged Arsenal to retain the services of midfielder Jack Wilshere beyond the summer.

The 26 year-old is into the final months of his playing contract with the North London club, and do not currently appear to be close to signing a new deal at present.

Arsenal must repeat last year’s Wembley heroics to beat Man City

Arsenal booked their place in the final of the League Cup last night with a win over Chelsea, and are now booked in to play Manchester City at Wembley next month.

The Citizens have been immensely impressive this season, going on an absurd record-setting run of wins, and look to have all-but wrapped up the Premier League title at this early point in the term.

Xhaka: ‘Arsenal have proven we have the fight to compete’

Granit Xhaka believes that Arsenal are showing the doubters that his side have the fight and aggression needed to succeed after some tough times of late.

The Gunners were criticised for lacking ‘cojones’ recently when Watford came from behind to steal all three points a couple of weeks ago, but we have since enjoyed our own reversals, coming from a goal down to win in each of our last three games.

Arsenal debate: Does Elneny deserve chance to displace Xhaka?

Granit Xhaka has come under scrutiny in recent weeks, and Arsenal may have to consider dropping him this weekend.

The Swiss international has put in a number of questionable displays, with him being singled out for criticism for his part in certain goals which have been conceded, and there are calls for him to be dropped for the starting line-up.

Arsenal urged to drop Xhaka? Should they?

Charlie Nicholas has urged Arsenal to drop Granit Xhaka for the coming matches, claiming they do not need a holding midfielder at home to such teams.

The Gunners host West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, and having seen all their top six rivals having won already this weekend, will be keen to follow suit.

Can Wilshere challenge Arsenal’s favoured midfield duo?

Martin Keown has claimed that Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka are keeping Jack Wilshere out of contention for Arsenal at present, but can he force his manager to consider him?

The former Gunners youth product has long been considered a future captain of our side, but has looked like an exit could be on the cards in recent seasons.

Has Ramsey finally found perfect role in Arsenal system?

Aaron Ramsey has been focussed on for praise for his display for Arsenal against Chelsea this weekend, and is said to have dominated Cesc Fabregas.

The Gunners earned a hard-fought 0-0 draw away to the Premier League champions on Sunday, and Aaron Ramsey has rightly been singled out for his performance.
