Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has told the club’s official website that Granit Xhaka is always improving and evolving.

Xhaka has been superb for Arsenal in recent weeks and is now one of the most important players in the team.

The Switzerland international midfielder has made 22 appearances in the Premier League for the Gunners so far this season.

Xhaka has scored one goal and given two assists in those matches.

Arteta said about Xhaka’s renaissance on Arsenal’s official website: “[It’s due to] things that are happening in his life, his private life, he’s a father now.

“He’s been through a lot, he’s been through difficult moments here, he’s found a lot of support internally to deal with certain situations.

“His character, the way he approaches problems, how he’s willing to change things, improve constantly, to become a better person and a better player, so credit to him for what he’s done.”

Big end to the season

Arsenal are in a great position to finish in the top four of the Premier League table this season.

And, in our opinion, Xhaka will play a big role in that quest for the Gunners.

Arsenal are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 60 points from 33 matches.

The North London club are two points ahead of fifth-placed and bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal’s destiny is in their own hands.

If Arsenal win their remaining Premier League games this season, then they will end up in the Champions League places.

Xhaka will know that he can play a big role in that quest.
