Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka revealed that the club were motivated by the criticism received after two consecutive losses at the start of the Premier League season. Romelu Lukaku scored on his second debut for the club before Reece James completed the scoring. The Gunners were beaten by newly-promoted Brentford on the opening day of the season. Xhaka signed a contract extension with the club at the start of the season.
“A lot of people try to speak and to kill a little bit the players and the team but the strongest thing to do at the moment is to be together, and only together will we be stronger and give the results on the pitch after.” Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka said. “We want to achieve something big, of course. After two games a lot of people are speaking about this team and about this club but I will say, no season finishes after two or three games.”
“I’m very happy, I’m still here,” he added. “I’ve signed a new contract of course and I want to give back, first of all to our staff, and then after to our fans. They know I will give everything – in every game and every training session. So yeah, I think we have to show that as a team soon. We still have games in front of us, we know we have to improve a lot of things and I’m sure we will do that.”
