Arsenal ran rally over Basel in the Champions League on Wednesday. Thanks to Theo Walcott, We won 2-0 but the scoreline do not in anyway reflect the performance of the players.
Also know for pulling a string of long passes from a deep midfield position, Xhaka’s has established himself for Arsenal as a lone-ranger, but Walcott has been found making jokes about the Swiss international.
It’s widely believed that most Arsenal players have been told to actually shoot less, according to Egyptian playmaker Mo Elneny according to this report from ESPN.
However, with two goals already from yards outside the 18-yard box, Xhaka has given Wenger more reasons to shoot than holding back. He may be the only Arsenal player given the license to shoot on sight. The fans are found always shouting “Shooooooot” when ever he has the ball.
Arsene Wenger celebrates his 20th year in charge this week as we prepare to face Burnley away this coming Sunday, live on Sky Sports, kicking off at 16:30 VAT (Vic Akers Time).
