Arsenal have received some positive news over the suspension of Granit Xhaka.
The 29-year-old was sent off in the first half of the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Liverpool on Thursday. He was given a straight red card for a high tackle on Liverpool forward Diogo Jota.
But it was not clear what the severity of his suspension would be.
According to football.london, Xhaka will only miss two games because it was a professional foul which denied a goalscoring opportunity.
The Swiss international will therefore sit out of Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham and the second leg against Liverpool next Thursday.
He will return for the visit of Burnley on Sunday January 23.
