Jamie Carragher: Arsenal must move on 'liability' Granit Xhaka

Jamie Carragher believes that Arsenal needs to move on Granit Xhaka if they want to continue their progression under Mikel Arteta. Carragher labeled the Arsenal midfielder a liability after he was shown a straight red card for a foul on Diogo Jota against Liverpool. After the sending-off, Arsenal put up one of the best defensive performances of the season to salvage a draw.

“Xhaka does what Xhaka does,” Jamie Carragher said about the Granit Xhaka foul at halftime. “He makes an absolutely ridiculous challenge when Jota still has so much to do. The way he has taken him out and with the force he does it. There’s no doubt it’s a red card. From the outside looking in, every manager picks him, so I actually think he must be a good character, a good trainer, and a good lad.”

“He is a good player as well, we have seen that in a Switzerland shirt and at times in an Arsenal shirt. But it does get to the stage where he is a liability in terms of what we saw tonight,” he added. “We can talk about how great Arsenal was, but more often than not, you go down to 10 men at Anfield, you don’t just lose the game, you are probably out of the competition. Liverpool, in a situation like that, should be looking to win 2-0, maybe 3-0, and the game’s finished. That comes down to Arsenal having 10 men and it happens too often.”
