I hope not.
Hopefully he won't loss us to many points this season and watch the game mostly from the stands/bench.
Not good enough in any area to help us reach top 4.
Has not improved not even one step in 3 years.
Please set us free
If all pans out as it should, he'll lose his place and hopefully leave.
MOTM for me today quite honestly.
Very sloppy at times in the first half but much better after the break. As is usual we get a mix of good and bad with Xhaka.
Solid 6/10 for me. Wasnt bad but I have seen him play quite a bit better. Positive for me was the lack of noticeable errors. Very few today. If he can keep that up then he will suffice.
I thought had a good game. Yes there were some loose passes but in the main his distribution was excellent. There was no diving in and he didn’t allow himself to be exposed 1v1 via good positioning.
I feel like if he can keep this up he may go some way to convincing some of his naysayers.
What's with this Xhaka love hes so awful that when he does the basics right, everyone makes is out like hes had a brilliant game, such a limited player and lacks so much awareness on the pitch he's always one play away from calamity.
Good game from Granit.
Typical xhaka performance few bad passes few nice passes from deep
Bad first half overall, besides some excellent passes.
Second half MOTM.
The usual frauds will act like he's a 20 year old in his first season.
Thread is already incredibly polarized one game in.
Thought he was very poor first half. There were some missplaced passes, but worse for me was that he only seemed to pass it backwards and didn't make himself available to transition the game from defense to attack. Neither he nor Guendouzi were passing options for the defense, so they kept passing it horizontally.
Second half he got involved more, had some good passes (sent Auba away once, although that pass wasn't incredibly difficult) and did well defensively.
6/10 for me.
Classic Xhaka performance. He had some wayward passes but he improved in the second half, but he got outplayed by Guendouzi imo. If the Inter rumours are true, I would take the money
Didnt see the game but its mixed reviews on here. Worst thing is that people who would never criticize Xhaka are praising him so I must assume it was more of the same from him, bad performance.
Minute 2, he receives the ball from Leno and I'm pleased with his body shape and preparation to go forward. Sadly under little pressure, he passed to an opponent. Only one other sloppy pass that I recall and he got a needless yellow. Otherwise, he did ok and I was especially pleased to see him kill time in the corner. I think he'd be good if he had some pace and agility as that would outweigh any errors.
So basically the Iwobi fans. Both are mid table players yet some people would call it perfume if these two passed gas
