Fans all say the same thing as Granit Xhaka picks up needless yellow card with Arsenal 3-0 up at Brentford | The Sun

FANS have all been left saying the same thing after Granit Xhaka was given a yellow card against Brentford.

Xhaka, 29, was booked after challenging Brentford goalkeeper David Raya as he attempted to kick the ball forward to launch a counter-attack.

Referee David Coote deemed Xhaka to have been overzealous and consequently booked him.

The Gunner's were already 3-0 up at this stage, and many questioned why Xhaka felt he had to make the challenge and play the rest of the game on a tightrope.

One user said: "Xhaka is playing out of his skin. And also gets his typical yellow."

A second added: "Death, taxes, Xhaka seeing a yellow," while a third said: "Xhaka getting a yellow card is inevitable."

More viewers echoed this sentiment, with another quipping: "It is not complete without a Xhaka yellow. 10/10."

Another said: "Xhaka getting a yellow via trolling the keeper at 3-0 up as is tradition."

Regardless of his booking, he has also been on the end of high praise after producing a sublime assist for Gabriel Jesus to double Arsenal's lead against Brentford.

One fan chose to highlight this along with their criticism of the card, with one adding: "Xhaka has been unreal all game and then decides he’s got to get his customary yellow card."
