Shocking – Arsenal Legend Blasts Xhaka And Elneny After Bournemouth Win

Arsenal bounced back with a win over the Cherries yesterday after a series of draws in the Premier and Champions League.

Granit Xhaka returned to the starting line up and he was paired with Mohamed Elneny in midfield.

However, despite Arsenal’s win, Arsenal legend Martin Keown has questioned the performance of Xhaka and Elneny in the game.

The summer signing from Borussia Monchengladbach has been in and out of side this season.

And several fans have been vocal in their desire to see the Swiss ace start more often.

After the win over the Cherries, Keown expressed his disappointment with the midfield partnership of Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.

He said: “At the moment it is not working for (Granit) Xhaka in that midfield.

“It’s just not blending for him and today with (Mohamed) Elneny in there as well.

“It didn’t look like they had that quality you associate with the Arsenal players of old in that midfield role.”

Keown also believes Arsenal are missing the influence of Santi Cazorla.

He added: “Jack Wilshere sitting in the stands – he’s going to be looking at Granit Xhaka and wondering ‘should I be out there myself?’

“[Cazorla] is a player Arsenal really miss. Him and another.

“He’s the one that Arsene Wenger likes there. He’s brave on the ball, makes things tick.”
