Video: Medical Sports expert gives insight into Granit Xhaka’s latest injury

Granit Xhaka has fallen foul of a new long-term injury, and is now expected to miss at least two months of action for Arsenal.

The Swiss midfielder had just missed three matches following a ban after he got a straight red card against Manchester City, before starring in our 3-1 demolition job of rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

He wasn’t able to complete the 90 minutes however, and we could now be without Xhaka until around Christmas, although his recovery time could vary.

Dr Rajpal Brar has now opened up with The Arsenal Way on what the midfielder could have to deal with in the coming months, and potentially even after he returns.

Will Xhaka’s absence likely give Lokonga the opportunity to stake a claim for a regular starting role, or could this be Mikel Arteta’s ideal opportunity to give Odegaard an extended run in a deeper role?

    According to Arsenal.com he is out for 3 months but let’s hope he is back far quicker than that.

      Not xakai biggest fan but wouldn’t like to see any player get injured, but it gives arteta the chance to play 433 system with Partey, Smith roe, odegarrd making up the 3 in midfield and saka, auba, Pepe front 3.
      Or Cup team should be…
      Leno
      Cedric holding mari taves
      Chambers
      Amn. Ioko
      Nekitha. Lacca. Martinelle

    Another article about Xhaka.

    You’d think he was Messi at Barcelona, but then you look at how well we did last season when he wasn’t in the midfield and realise we scored 2 points per game on average compared to 1.33 when he was “dictating play.”

      All coaches cannot be wrong!! From wenger to arteta have always started him. Even mourinho wanted him!!. Yes, he is reckless, but he is a good player!! Simple!

        A good player at a stretch when the whole team are playing well ,but come up against the better teams and he can not control a game a grab it by the scruff of the neck ,when the chips are down you need just that sort of player, Xhaka is not that .
        He does the simple things great but he doesn’t step up often enough .

        That’s why all couches that played him, failed to deliver
