Xhaha was subject to a torrent of abuse in the immediate aftermath, with many Gunners supporters hedging the blame on him for the first two Liverpool goals.

As a result the Swiss midfielder, who was yesterday awarded his country’s Player of the Year award, made the decision to remove the feature.

It hasn’t stopped Arsenal fans bombarding his previous photos with negative comments though.

Fans were quick to jump on his older photos to get their point across

Xhaka also revealed he doesn’t feel he can show his face in London after the drubbing on Merseyside.

He told ESPN: “I’m not going out after a 4-0 loss against Liverpool.”

What Xhaka needs now is a trip to the Winchester and wait for it all to blow over…
