- Since his debut season with Arsenal in 2016-17, no Premier League player has been sent off more times in all competitions than Granit Xhaka
- Granit Xhaka has been sent off for the third time since the beginning of last season: ◉ 56’ vs Burnley (Dec 2020) ◉ 35’ vs Man City (Aug 2021) ◉ 24’ vs Liverpool (Jan 2022) They’re getting earlier each time.
Granit Xhaka adds more to his red card collection today after a careless tackle that got him sent off early in today’s Carabao Cup semifinal 2 first leg match against Liverpool.
Xhaka is known for getting red cards and costing Arsenal goals and making the game difficult for his teammates. The referee showed him a straight red card for a high challenge on Jota, who would have had a clear run on goal. This means that Xhaka will miss 3 games.
Here is what people are saying on Twitter about Xhaka’s red card.
