Arsenal icon Ian Wright claims there is one Arsenal player that is Xhaka and is the reason he’s been playing poorly this season

“He is missing Granit Xhaka and that is why he has been playing rubbish for almost this season”- Arsenal icon Ian Wright claims there is one Arsenal player that is Xhaka and is the reason he’s been playing poorly this season Ian Wright, the Arsenal legend, claims that Granit Xhaka’s departure in the summer left a gap on the Gunners’ left side of midfield, which is the cause of Oleksander Zinchenko’s difficulties.

Granit Xhaka and Oleksander Zinchenko were unquestionably two of Arsenal’s key performers from the previous campaign. On a good day, Xhaka, Zinchenko, and Martinelli plagued Arsenal’s opponents thanks to their superb left-side linking play.

That on-field connection was broken when Xhaka left in the summer, and it hasn’t helped that Havertz hasn’t been playing at his best and Arteta has switched up who plays the left midfield position (Declan Rice, Fabio Vieira, and even Emile Smith-Rowe have done so).
