‘MOTM’, ‘incredible’: Some Arsenal fans hail £100k-a-week man’s display against Crystal Palace

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to praise Granit Xhaka for his display in Thursday night’s Premier League stalemate against Crystal Palace.

The Gunners’ recent resurgence, with four consecutive wins in all competitions, was checked against a stubborn Eagles outfit at the Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta’s charges weren’t quite as dangerous in attack as they had been in recent weeks, with the likes of Bukayo Saka, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failing to impress.

Meanwhile, Palace had numerous chances of their own, with Christian Benteke, Eberechi Eze and Wilfried Zaha involved in many of the visitors’ good moves as they sought to catch their opponents on the break.

Xhaka was key to Arsenal keeping a clean sheet as he made a number of crucial tackles, blocks and interceptions while tracking back, and his passing was superb as well – close to 90 percent accuracy from 112 passes, plus seven accurate long balls.

Here is some of the fan reaction to the £100,000-a-week man’s display on the night:

 

Arsenal are currently 11th in the table with 24 points from 18 games, and are next up against Newcastle on Monday.
