Old habits die hard for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.

Currently serving a ban for a wild lunge in his last match against Burnley, the Swiss international couldn’t help himself as he faced up to 17-year-old female freestyler Lisa Zimouche.

The 24-year-old, alongside team-mates Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, were attempting to not be humiliated by the freestyling star, so Xhaka did what Xkaha does – studs up, trying to win the ball.

Watch the video below, with Xhaka’s clear lunge at 1:06.

Incredibly, this wasn’t the most striking thing about the video – as Zimouche proved she was one of the most prolific nutmeggers around by megging defender Shkodran Mustafi later in the video.

We shouldn’t need to remind you, but Mustafi is a World Cup winning defender.
