Arsenal: Influential Star Named Among The Best, Star Man Epitomes The Gunners' DNA

Here's what's going on at the Emirates:

Granit Xhaka is undeniably important to Arteta's squad. Many Arsenal fans snubbed the midfielder in the past, but he has truly redeemed himself this season. Xhaka has progressed from a yellow-card-prone midfielder who was a liability to Arteta's project to an important part of Arsenal's attacking play as a result of his goals, assists, and chances created. Kevin Campbell, a former Arsenal player, has not been shy about praising the rejuvenated Swiss, claiming, "When I look at Granit Xhaka now, he epitomises what Arsenal are. They’ve been down, and I can’t believe I’m saying it, he’s come from nowhere. He was a good international player. Everybody used to say ‘we need Switzerland’s Xhaka at Arsenal’, and now he’s proving it."

Meanwhile, according to Ronaldinho and Marco Van Basten, Bukayo Saka is the world's third-best young footballer. As per TBR, "All three previous winners of the Ballon d’Or named the Arsenal 21-year-old third on their list, which means they believe Saka is the third-best young player in the whole world at the moment."

There's no denying Saka's form has contributed to Arsenal's stellar league record of 9 wins in 10 games this season. Saka could end up being the best if Arsenal can maintain their incredible form.
