Arsenal fans can’t decide whether Granit Xhaka is having the game of his life or a complete mare

A classic performance of Hollywood passes and other mindless mistakes

Arsenal fans are never happy are they?

One of their starting midfielders, who has just signed a contract extension, is playing at a World Cup and they cannot decide if he is a proper midfield operator or a glorified Jordan Henderson.

Even after he scored an absolute screamer to pull Switzerland level with Serbia, Granit Xhaka divides Arsenal fans more than Jack Wilshere.

Before his wonderstrike Xhaka had failed to have any real impact on the game as his country went a goal down from Aleksandr Mitrovic.

And the Arsenal fans out there were quick to let him know…

Then there were those that thought the £35m man was having a blinder.

He was hitting some good passes and orchestrating Switzerland’s play from the middle.

Here’s what they said…

Even after his beautiful strike, people still managed to find a way to hit him with a backhand compliment…

And it left some Arsenal fans just utterly torn about whether Xhaka is brilliant or awful…

Well you can’t please everyone all of the time, eh?
