Over the past Granit Xhaka has been subjected to trolls and associated with every negative that happens in the field of play even if he is not the cause of poor results.
Xhaka is a quality player and a big game changer when tasked with the mantle of leading the troops during matchdays. Apart from his mistakes, Granit Xhaka is able to dictate games on his own and can be relied upon when needed.
With the North London derby in sight over the weekend, Granit should be incorporated in the starting eleven to partner Thomas on a double pivot. This will release pressure on Thomas Partey, having come from injury not long ago and is still short of match fitness.
Xhaka while in the field of paly is a threat while in the opponents half with his long range shots and also he can create chances through his long passes that can dismantle the oppositions defense set up.
While naming the starting lineup over the weekend, Granit Xhaka's name should be the first name in the list because he fancies the rivalry brought about by the fixture.
Coach Mikel Arteta should come up with a set up that will make both Thomas and Granit thrive while partnered together in the field of play.
