Arsenal failed to win against Watford on Sunday.
Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Granit Xhaka against Watford on Sunday evening.
Xhaka featured for Arsenal in their Premier League game against Watford away from home at Vicarage Road.
The Switzerland international midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as it ended in a 2-2 draw.
The midfielder played relatively well against Watford, as he made some good tackles, was largely disciplined, and passed the ball well.
According to WhoScored, Xhaka took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 84.6%, won one header, took 66 touches, and made four tackles and one interception.
One last think after the first half, I believe Torriera should start ahead of Xhaka... #afc— Sanket (@SanketGooner) September 15, 2019

All should leave AFC and in January
I swear to god we have the dumbest trio between Xhaka and the pick of two centerbacks. Just laughable errors at this level week in, week out. #AFC— Adam Cespedes (@AdamCZ) September 15, 2019
Still waiting for a Xhaka special— Volumiser_AFC (@Volumiser_AFC) September 15, 2019
Literally running rings around xhaka mad how he gets on the pitch— G12_AFC (@G1ZA12) September 15, 2019
Taking of ceballos was a bad move— Talha (@_Talhaaaaaa) September 15, 2019
Should've been xhaka imo
Who leaves Xhaka on this pitch ffs, Fully hate our defence and Emery’s tactic sometimes— Callum (@AFC_Cal) September 15, 2019
He need to go and take xhaka with him— Dr Haitham Ben Ali (@hathbenali) September 15, 2019
This is what you get when you have garbage like Xhaka and Luiz in your team.— AFC_RF (@afc_rf) September 15, 2019
Guendouzi and the back four sloppy. Xhaka has been decent in fairness. Ceballos really good. Özil some telling balls and pre-assist a decent return to starting line up. Aubameyang lethal. Pepe a good outlet.— Darren (@SouthWestAFC) September 15, 2019
Xhaka been unreal so far but no one will say as there is an agenda.— S1 AFC (@Arsenal_S1) September 15, 2019
Props to Aubameyang and Luiz, special mention to MÖ for sliding into the team like he never missed a game and to Sead for that dribble + assist. Xhaka decent so far and Ceballos getting stuck in— David (@_AFC_David) September 15, 2019
Half time thoughts— Dylan (@AFCDylan_) September 15, 2019
- We started the game terribly
- I love Aubameyang
- Maitland Niles disasterclass
- Xhaka has been brilliant
- Guendouzi and Sokratis have been poor
- If we didnt get that first goal we would be losing at half time
- Pepe needs to run at them more
Watford have a good team and they had home advantage against the Gunners, but Arsenal will be bitterly disappointed with the final result.
After all, the Gunners were 2-0 up after 32 minutes, thanks to a double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The North London outfit slipped up defensively in the second half, and manager Unai Emery will not be happy with his defenders.
The draw with Watford means that Arsenal are now seventh in the Premier League table with eight points from five matches.
