‘How many more times?!’ Arsenal fans rip into ‘clueless liability’ Granit Xhaka after the midfielder picked up ANOTHER red card early on in their Carabao Cup semi-final at Liverpool
- Granit Xhaka was sent off in the first-half of Arsenal’s cup semi-final at Liverpool
- The Gunners midfielder put in a high challenge on Diogo Jota while the last man
- Michael Oliver sent Xhaka off straight away and VAR agreed with the decision
- Arsenal fans ripped into Xhaka for his fifth red card in five-and-a-half years
Arsenal fans ripped into much-maligned midfielder Granit Xhaka once again on social media after the Swiss international received another red card, this time at Liverpool.
Mid-way through the first-half at Anfield, Xhaka produced a high challenge on Diogo Jota when he was the last man, which led to referee Michael Olivier brandishing the red card and giving the 29-year-old his marching orders.
The other Gunners players were then left to play the final hour of their Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg a man light, but Arsenal fans had already unleashed their fury at Xhaka by the time he got to the dressing room.

One Arsenal fan, who took a photo inside Anfield, captioned the image: ‘Granit Xhaka is a complete and utter liability for Arsenal. A disgrace.’
Another tweeted: ‘Get XHAKA out of my club!!!! S*** player!!, Arteta messed up starting that liability once again!! #arsenal’
One disgruntled Arsenal fan added: ‘XHAKA OMG PLEASE JUST LEAVE OUR CLUB!!! How many more times???!!!!’
Another added: ‘How many times will Xhaka f*** us. Time and time again for a player aged 29 or so years. Taking the p***.’
Arsenal fans took just a few seconds to start ripping into the Swiss midfielder for his red card
One fan posted: ‘Granit Xhaka is brain dead. I don’t think this guy is normal in the head.’
Thursday night’s sending off is Xhaka’s fifth in his Arsenal career, while only Spain defender Sergio Ramos has more sending offs since the Swiss midfielder made his Gunners debut in the 2016-17 season.
His most recent red card before the Anfield clash was another first-half dismissal awa at Manchester City in August, a match which Arsenal went on to lose 5-0
Fans of other teams also took the opportunity to make fun of Arsenal and Xhaka after another moment of madness.

One fan said that Xhaka is ‘too funny’ while another claimed that the Arsenal man ‘loves a red card a little too much.’
Another added: ‘Why do arsenal continually trust xhaka? Actually ridiculous how many red cards he gets’
One fan used the phrase ‘water is wet’ to describe Xhaka’s sending off while another claimed that ‘something is actually spiritually wrong with Xhaka’.
Xhaka’s sending off means he will miss Sunday’s north London derby at Tottenham, as well the second-leg against Liverpool on the following Thursday.
