Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka Latest Injury Update

The Swiss midfielder was forced off with a serious-looking knee injury during Sunday's North London Derby win. Granit Xhaka will see further knee specialists with official confirmation on his injury lay off expected within the next 24 hours. The Switzerland international had to be substituted in the 82nd minute of the North London Derby after sustaining what looked like a knee injury following a collision with Tottenham midfielder Lucas Moura.

A positive Covid-19 test made Xhaka miss Switzerland's international fixtures at the beginning of the month. Xhaka's return to the team made the midfield dominate their opposition on Sunday afternoon, but Arteta admitted afterwards that the 28-year-old's injury is likely to be a lot worse than first feared.

Unfortunately he got injury and I'm pretty worried because it doesn't look very positive at the moment.",Arteta said. Arteta made as many as 10 changes to the side that started the 3-0 Carabao Cup third-round win over AFC Wimbledon in midweek with Thomas Partey the only survivor.
