EPL: It’s crazy – Martin Keown slam one Arsenal player after 5-0 thrashing by Man City


Former Arsenal player, Martin Keown has delivered a brutal criticism of Granit Xhaka after the midfielder was sent off in Arsenal’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester City.

He blasted the midfielder’s decision to lunge in on City defender Joao Cancelo with both feet at the Etihad.

Arsenal endured another nightmare in the opening 45 minutes at the weekend, with Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres both netting inside 12 minutes before Xhaka was given his marching orders.

Gabriel Jesus’ goal and further strikes from Jesus, Rodri and Torres extended City’s advantage after the break

No player has been sent off more times than Xhaka (4) since the Swiss made his Premier League debut at the start of the 2016/17.

‘”He’s just committed to that and we know this is the fourth red card since he’s been an Arsenal player. That’s 11 now in club football,” Keown told BT Sport.

“It’s crazy! It’s crazy why he goes off his feet at that point.

“You just expect so much better from your most experienced player.

“He’s been given one or two opportunities when people thought his career was over at Arsenal.

“He’s done it so many times. How many times has he done this in his career? I think it’s 44 yellow cards and four red now for Arsenal.”
