Granit Xhaka looks to be in contention for the trip to Liverpool this weekend.

The Swiss star missed the Gunners’ first home fixture of the campaign against Burnley with a leg problem, however, he has now returned to full training.

And former Arsenal striker Charlie Nicholas has urged Unai Emery to leave the midfielder out of the starting lineup on Saturday evening.

Nicholas, writing in his Sky Sports column, cited by the Daily Express, said:

I think Arsenal should play a back four with two protectors in front. I don’t want Granit Xhaka in the team, I would prefer Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

These Arsenal fans have also called for the 26-year-old to be kept out of the side this weekend.
