Arsenal lose again on their travels
Arsenal have one of the worst away records in English football this season and they were beaten by the Premier League’s bottom club on Tuesday night by 3 goals to 1.
Swansea tore Arsenal to shreds and two players in particular were destroyed on social media.
Granit Xhaka can’t play football
Xhaka seemed to completely switch off as Sam Clucks equalised for Swansea after Nacho Monreal had given Arsenal an early lead.
The Swiss midfielder has been caught napping on plenty of occasions this term and many Arsenal fans believe he is not good enough for the club.
Xhaka gives away needless fouls, picks up too many yellow cards and contributes very little to Arsenal’s attack and it is to no great surprise that,not for the first time this season, he was at the heart of plenty of abuse from Arsenal fans on twitter.

Convinced Xhaka has 0 brain cells. Will never have the concentration levels to be elite.

Xhaka is a fucking disgrace. Pinned tweet.

Granit Xhaka's defensive awareness is so poor.

I can honestly say that I haven't seen a midfielder as terrible at defense as Granit Xhaka in 20 years of watching Arsenal FC.

Petr Cech was also slated… again
A shocking mis-kick from Cech led to Swansea’s second goal and yet again, Petr Cech was extremely poor for Arsenal.
Many fans and pundits believe that Cech is past his best and is no longer a quality goalkeeper.
It seems ludicrous that Arsenal sold Wojciech Szczesny to Juventus in the summer considering how poor Cech has played in his two and a half years in North London.
The former Chelsea keeper has conceded 14 goals in his last seven matches for the club which is an abysmal record for any goalkeeper, let alone one at a top English side.
Cech has come under criticism for his failure to save a penalty for The Gunners but he has made numerous mistakes this season leading to goals which were easily avoidable.
Of course, Arsenal fans and pundits were quick to give their thoughts on Cech’s mistake and his overall performance.
Petr Cech might have to wait until 2026 for his 200th clean sheet

By the way, if a Liverpool keeper just did what Petr Cech did, I think the internet would combust.

Arsenal fans and pundits when Petr Cech joined Arsenal: "A goalkeeper like Cech can get you 10 points per season."
Did they mean it for the opposing teams?

Petr Cech has now made four errors that have directly led to an opposition goal in the Premier League this season, more than any other player ❌
Time for a goalkeeping change at Arsenal? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/l5Z5PTpLHL

Who else was poor?
As an Arsenal fan myself, I have to say that Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette were appalling tonight and can consider themselves lucky that Cech and Xhaka were so bad.
