'What a player': Gabriel Jesus and Saka among Arsenal players to take to Instagram to laud teammate's USA displays

Arsenal’s pre-season tour of the USA can be considered a success both on and off the field, with the Gunners hammering Chelsea over the weekend to round things out.

The Gunners put their London rivals to the sword across the pond as Gabriel Jesus once again scored to continue his fine form since arriving. There were also goals for Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Sambi Lokonga in what was an impressive showing by Arteta’s side.

Key to the performance yet again though was midfielder, Granit Xhaka. The Swiss star has been integral for Arteta since he took over and remains a key player in the middle. And Xhaka clearly has the backing and love from his teammates too, with a number of Arsenal players commenting on his Instagram post about the US tour.

The likes of Gabriel Jesus and Pablo Mari lauded Xhaka by commenting ‘what a player’, while other members of the squad showed their appreciation too.

TBR’s View: Xhaka Deserves Credit For Arsenal Turnaround

There was a point in time when Granit Xhaka’s career looked all but done for. But to his credit, he hasn’t half turned things around and become a key player since.

He seems to be growing as time goes by and maybe he’s enjoying being one of the more experienced players in what is a young and upcoming Gunners side.

Certainly, his performances in pre-season have been good and he could well be a key man again this coming season. That, of course, will suit Mikel Arteta down to the ground if he can have a fit and focussed Xhaka.
