Nuggets what are your thoughts on Emery the Don making Xhaka captain and thus undroppable?

I have no idea how these stats have gone unnoticed by Emery. He's supposed to be meticulous when it comes to stats and rewatching mistakes and videos.

It'd be worrying if our third longest serving player who, since his Arsenal debut, got eclipsed for total tallies by players who arrived years after him.

Not a fan of Xhaka. But he has more than double appearances in that time than most of his counterparts, the above is the most obvious stat there will be on him. Use some common sense & don’t blindly join a neutral narrative to pull down your own player.

If he was good at tackling and offered more it wouldn't be so bad but if all he can offer is to give away penalties and fouls along with some long distance passing then he is as is .......... no good.

Ozil could offer us all of the above plus incisive through balls and attacking play.

Xhaka is a water carrier.

I trust Arsenal fans to defend mediocrity like their lives depended on it.

We could see he was shocking at defending before these stats came out. He's a huge burden.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has thrown his support behind Granit Xhaka after the midfielder conceded a needless penalty in the Gunners' North London Derby clash with Tottenham earlier in September.

Emery feels the midfielder had a good game other than the foul and has backed his man to improve as Arsenal look to cut out their mistakes and climb the Premier League standings.

“We were speaking this morning,” the manager said of Xhaka. “[Make a] mistake, recognise that mistake, learn, correct it, improve and repeat with success. We could speak about every player's mistakes in every training session and each match.

“Only, some mistakes can be 'big picture' because the consequence is more [apparent]. But really we can't have more mistakes like that after they score a goal against us or if we haven't scored.

“But I am focused on the good things, on the positives. Xhaka has a big character and he's very important for us.”

Asked if the 26-year-old brings something to the team that fellow central midfielders Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira do not, Emery continued: “Of course, he gives us very good balance in the middle with the ball and without the ball.

“He's very important for us. We can talk about the defects of any player, for him too, but we can speak about the very positive performances he gives us in most matches [too].”

Goal

Very worrying. Emery still seems to see him as a certain starter.

Xhaka wasn't able to cut out the mistakes for his whole career. I don't see him doing it now

More worrying is Emery’s style. Xhaka and Luiz as starters means route 1 football. Hit the ball up and get Auba, Laca and Pepe to use their pace to get on it. Leicester football. Small team mindset. Can’t imagine Klopp and Pep employing such tactics.
