No doubt, Granit Xhaka has been increasingly improving upon his game since the long-term absence of Santi Cazorla and this Swiss international is easily becoming fans favorite.
The midfielder has revealed the importance of having Per Mertesacker at Arsenal, days after the World cup winner signed a new contract for Arsenal.
The former-Germany international is yet to play this season after suffering from a knee injury in the summer but he has now returned to training and could finally return to action at some point in the coming months.
Arsenal host Burnley on Sunday afternoon as they look to secure their position in the top four with Manchester City and Manchester United not far behind, two and four points, respectively.
Xhaka told ES: “Unfortunately I have not had the chance to train with Per since I arrived here, actually.
Burnley have the worst away record in the league, with just one point from a possible 27. After the game against the Clarets, Arsenal head to Southampton for an FA Cup fourth-round clash.
