Kevin De Bruyne vs Granit Xhaka

If De Bruyne’s inch perfect, calm, cool and collected through ball to feed teammate Leroy Sane in the away fixture was anything to go by, then he should provide a tough task for the Gunners’ back line to disrupt.

The Belgian international would be faced with Swiss midfield technician Granit Xhaka to try to combat Kevin’s deadly through balls and key passes which have lead him to the top of the assists charts when writing with 13 in the Premier League alone

Xhaka will utilise his abilities to wisely intercept balls and expertly stopping attacks with a well-timed tackle. However let’s hope his discipline gets the better of him, as he has been subject to nine red cards in just three years so may need to go to some measure to even attempt to halt De Bruyne in his element.
