Granit Xhaka made the FIFA 19 Team of the Week after his performance against Newcastle.

The Swiss midfielder scored a delightful freekick and finished the game as Arsenal’s highest-rated player thanks to his involvement in the game, even if his ability to keep the ball was worse than any of his partners in the middle.

For many Arsenal fans, Xhaka has largely underwhelmed this season but after being benched against Chelsea back in August, it seems as if he is now becoming as integral to Unai Emery’s Arsenal as he was to Arsene Wenger’s.
