You have to feel a tad sorry for Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka.

Even in training, his performances are being slammed by Gunners supporters.

Unai Emery put his Arsenal players through their paces on Saturday ahead of this afternoon's visit of Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

And unfortunately for Xhaka, one of his mistakes at London Colney yesterday was captured on video.


The Switzerland international, slammed for his display against Manchester United at the start of the week, played the ball straight to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - an opposition player during a training-ground game - and the Gabon international instantly punished him by curling into the top corner.

Here's how Arsenal supporters reacted to the 27-year-old's mistake on Twitter:

So long as Xhaka doesn't do the same against the Cherries today, it'll be fine, but you wouldn't put it past him.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach star is erratic at the best of times and having been given the armband last week, the added pressure might exacerbate this.
