Mikel Arteta provides alarming update on Granit Xhaka’s injury after Arsenal vs Tottenham

Mikel Arteta says he is “worried” about Granit Xhaka’s injury after the midfielder was forced off during Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Tottenham.

The Switzerland international had to be substituted in the 82nd minute of the game after sustaining what looked like a knee injury.

A positive Covid-19 test saw Xhaka miss Switzerland’s international fixtures at the beginning of the month.

“He came back and he was fine because he really looks after himself,” Arteta revealed in his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon.

“He was training and as he always is, he gives you the maximum and the best possible attitude to compete and win matches.”
