Arsenal fans lashed out at ‘distraught responsibility’ Granit Xhaka after his first-half red card at Liverpool

Arsenal fans have again torn up much-maligned midfielder Granit Xhaka on social media after the Switzerland international was shown another red card, this time at Liverpool.

Midway through the first half at Anfield, Xhaka produced a tall challenge on Diogo Jota when he was the last defender, which led referee Michael Olivier to wave the red card and give his orders to the 29-year-old.

The other Gunners players then had to play the last hour of their Carabao Cup semi-final go a light man, but Arsenal fans had already unleashed their fury against Xhaka by the time he arrived in the dressing room.

An Arsenal fan, who was snapped inside Anfield, captioned the image: “Granit Xhaka is a full and total liability to Arsenal.” A shame.’

Another tweeted: ‘Get XHAKA out of my club!!!! Player S***!!, Arteta messed up by starting this responsibility again!! #arsenal’

A disgruntled Arsenal fan added: ‘XHAKA OMG PLEASE LEAVE OUR CLUB!!! How many more times???!!!!’

Another added: ‘How many times will Xhaka fuck us. Time and time again for a player aged around 29. Take the p***.’

Arsenal fans took just seconds to start tearing up the Swiss midfielder for his red card

One fan posted: ‘Granit Xhaka is brain dead. I don’t think this guy is normal in his head.

Thursday night’s sending off is Xhaka’s fifth in his Arsenal career, while only Spain defender Sergio Ramos has had more sending offs since the Swiss midfielder made his debut for the Gunners in the 2016 season- 17.

His last red card before the Anfield clash was another first-half dismissal at Manchester City in August, a game which Arsenal then lost 5-0.

Fans of other teams also took the opportunity to mock Arsenal and Xhaka after yet another moment of madness.

Fans of other clubs mocked Xhaka and Arsenal after another crazy moment

One fan said Xhaka was “too funny” while another claimed the Arsenal man “likes a red card a little too much”.

Another added: “Why does arsenal continually trust xhaka?” In fact, the number of red cards he receives is ridiculous

One fan used the phrase ‘water is wet’ to describe Xhaka’s dispatch while another claimed that ‘something is spiritually wrong with Xhaka’.

Xhaka’s expulsion means he will miss Sunday’s North London derby at Tottenham, as well as the second leg against Liverpool the following Thursday.
