Arsenal now leads the league standings going into the international break. Wright couldn’t help but admire the newly revitalised Xhaka. Following the game, he stated, via BBC:
It’s a great cross for the Jesus goal, it’s fantastic. He can also do the defensive stuff, he gets back and get his foot in there.‘He set the tempo for Arsenal off the ball.
I’m really pleased for him because I was one of his staunchest critics. But now we’re seeing the best of Granit Xhaka.
