Which Arsenal player has piqued your interest so far this season? If not Granit Xhaka, I'm not sure who has. After transitioning from a defensive to an attacking role, the Swiss international has proven to be a handful for Arsenal's opponents.
When he is not creating key chances, he is assisting, and when he is not assisting, he is scoring goals. If you can't find the right words to describe how Xhaka has been, Aaron Ramsdale's description may come in handy. "Granit Xhaka has been near perfect," says Ramsdale. In 13 games, Xhaka has 3 goals and 3 assists.
Arsenal's attack has been brilliant this season; on a good day, rival defenders are unable to contain them. Arsenal received a significant boost with the signing of Gabriel Jesus. Despite not scoring as many goals as expected, he has been the difference-maker in Arsenal's attack.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson admires Jesus' influence on Arsenal's attacking play. "Gabriel Jesus may not score goals, but he brings so much to the party," said Merson, per TBR. "He makes a difference on the pitch, and he’s taken Arsenal to a different level."
