Arsenal fans have been left questioning Arsene Wenger’s recent comments on Twitter with the French manager revealing that he is aiming to use Granit Xhaka as a box-to-box midfielder.
The midfielder joined Arsenal in a £30million deal from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer.
The Gunners boss revealed in a press conference before the game that he preferred the Switzerland international to play more forward than what he was used to.
However, these comments have not impressed the Gunners faithful and many fans took to Twitter to question Wenger’s judgement.
Supporters believe Xhaka is ideal for the midfield anchorman role and should be picked ahead of Francis Coquelin, who has started alongside Santi Cazorla in the last two matches.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
