Arsenal are on a roll, having only lost once, drawn once, and won 13 games this season. At the moment, it is impossible to discuss Arsenal without mentioning Granit Xhaka. Xhaka has been a driving force for Arteta this season. A few seasons ago, the Swiss midfielder was stripped of his captaincy at Arsenal, and many believed it was only a matter of time before he left the club.
Arteta, on the other hand, took it upon himself to resurrect the 30-year-old's career, and now Xhaka is the one pulling the strings for Arteta's attack. Xhaka's brilliant form has overshadowed even Odegaard's brilliance. Tottenham legend Paul Robinson believes Xhaka is the most important Arsenal player right now. He claims, "I think he’s been a revelation; he’s been arguably their best player."
Assuming a more advanced role, Xhaka is now not only scoring but also assisting and creating chances. He has 4 goals and 3 assists in 14 starts this season, his best in a single season in recent years.
