EPL: We did it twice – Xhaka slams Arsenal’s critics

Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka, has slammed the club’s critics, who are playing down the Gunners’ chances of winning the Premier League title this season, saying his team have beaten the league’s top six twice.

Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table ahead of second-placed Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta’s side have already lost one match so far this season against Manchester United.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Xhaka insisted that if Arsenal can maintain their current run of form, then the ongoing season could prove to be special for them.

Xhaka said: “It can be a special year. If we keep going like we are working at the moment, we can get something big.”

He added, “What I hear from people outside, they are saying we are not ready to beat the top six. But we did it twice now. We lost at Manchester United, where we were the better team.”
