“How many times ?!” Arsenal fans are embroiled in ‘unclear responsibility’ Granit Xhaka after the midfielder received another early red card in Liverpool’s Carabao Cup semi-final.

  • Granit Xhaka was sent off in the first half of the Arsenal Cup semi-final at Liverpool Stadium
  • The Gunners midfielder put a huge challenge on Diogo Jota when he was the last player
  • Michael Oliver sent Xhaka on the spot and the VAR approved the decision
  • Arsenal fans stormed Xhaka to get his fifth red card in five and a half years











Arsenal fans stormed into midfielder Granit Xhaka again on social media after the Swiss international received another red card, this time at Liverpool.

Halfway through the first half at Anfield, Xhaka presented a massive challenge to Diogo Jota when he was the last defender, prompting referee Michael Olivier for a red card and giving the 29-year-old his order to walk.

The other Arsenal players were then left to play the final hour of the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, but Arsenal fans had already unleashed on Xhaka by the time he reached the dressing room.

Another tweeted: ‘Kick XHAKA off my team!!!! S player ***!! Arteta made the mistake of starting that responsibility again!! # arsenal ‘

And one disgruntled Arsenal fan added: ‘XHAKA OMG PLEASE JUST LEAVE OUR CLUB!!! HOW MANY ???!!!!’

Another added: ‘How many times will Xhaka f*** us. Time and time again for a player of 29 or so. take p***.

One fan posted: “Granit Xhaka is brain dead. I don’t think this guy is normal in the head.

Xhaka’s expulsion on Thursday evening is Xhaka’s fifth in his career with Arsenal, while Spanish defender Sergio Ramos is the only one to have been sent off since the Swiss midfielder made his debut for Arsenal in the 2016-2017 season.

His last red card before facing Anfield was another red card in the first half at Manchester City in August, a match Arsenal lost 5-0

Fans of other teams also took the opportunity to mock Arsenal and Xhaka after another moment of madness.

One fan said Xhaka was “so funny” while another claimed that the Arsenal man liked the red card a lot.

Another added: ‘Why does Arsenal constantly trust xhaka? It’s actually ridiculous how many red cards he’s got.”

One fan used the phrase “the water is wet” to describe Xhaka’s expulsion while another claimed that “something is actually spiritually wrong with Xhaka”.

Xhaka’s dismissal means he will miss Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham, as well as the return leg against Liverpool the following Thursday.
