When Xhaka arrived, Wenger described him as a box-to-box midfielder, immediately I had concerns, has he even seen him play? Xhaka has always thrived in the deepest lying midfield role and when given the responsibility to dictate the tempo of a game. Unfortuantely Wenger has often pair Xhaka with the wrong partner this season and this has led to Xhaka underperforming. Arsene invested £30million in Xhaka, nearly as much as Alexis Sanchez, so it is odd to see the Frenchman struggling to get the best out of him.
