defeated Wolverhampton 5-0 with an outstanding performance from Granit Xhaka, who scored two goals in the game. Xhaka, who seems to be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, played a crucial role in Arsenal's win.

Mikel Arteta spoke about the reception that Granit Xhaka received from Arsenal fans after the game:

“Well deserved. He’s had an incredible season.

“I think one year back I spoke to him and I told him ‘there’s a question mark on you, you have to deliver more, you have to be better, I’m going to challenge you to play here.’

“He went back and I think he started to train the next day. He came back in preseason four kilos less, fit, with this face and really willing to do it. He’s been exceptional."

It seems that Xhaka will join Bayer Leverkusen at the end of the season, after spending seven seasons at Arsenal.
