'Fantastic news': Arsenal fans react to seeing Granit Xhaka back in training
Arsenal fans will need to wait until tomorrow to see their team in action against Everton, but updates from the training ground this weekend are looking positive for the Gunners.
In the main, that’s because Granit Xhaka has been back out on the grass and even having light touches of the football.
The Swiss star was not expected to return until the new year. However, Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Xhaka has really stepped things up this week. That, in turn, has led to some Arsenal fans believing that the midfielder could even be back as soon as the next week or two.
Of course, it remains to be seen just when Xhaka will return. But the midfield has looked light without him at times and with Thomas Partey off to Africa in January, his return is a timely one.
Naturally, Arsenal fans were all over Twitter discussing the news about Xhaka.
Here, then, is how some Gunners fans reacted to the injury update on Granit Xhaka this weekend.

Ngl. That’s a positive. As much as he can lose his head at times he’s our 2nd if not (sometimes) our best midfielder

Fantastic news. I swear Partey is a different beast with Xhaka at his side.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but we’ve actually missed him 😭

Granit Xhaka is the best midfielder Arsenal has, I hope Arteta ease him back into the team immediately, we need his experience badly, I’m tired of watching Partey play like Bakayoko

Xhaka predicted by the club to be out till mid-January and already back in full training at the start of December. He can’t be human.

Give credit where its due.
Xhaka is best compared to Jorginho.
