After beating Manchester United 2-0 Arsenal have moved into the Champions League places and Granit Xhaka played a major role in the crucial win.
The Swiss international opened the scoring for the Gunners with a swerving shot from distance, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubling the lead from the penalty spot midway through the second half.
However, it was not the only reason Arsenal fans noticed Xhaka.
The Arsenal player was on hand to win the ball as the ex-Porto man teed up Rashford in a glorious position just inside the area.
It was wonderful play from the ex-Borussia Monchengladbach player and Gunners fans were quick to praise him following his crucial tackle.
Here’s what the fans have had to say on Twitter:
Got this off Reddit but I just had to share. This is Xhaka's last ditch tackle in the box that potentially saved us from conceding.
We see a lot of shit posting from our and other fans alike when he makes mistakes but no appreciation for moments like these. pic.twitter.com/69uKDDSVqH
