There are certain players in football who only score good goals.
Xavi Alonso is one, Jonjo Shelvey another.
Turns out Granit Xhaka is another.
The Arsenal midfielder scored an absolute stunner against Hull City at the weekend and returned to score yet another beauty in the EFL Cup against Nottingham Forest.
He picked the ball up from 40 yards before advancing a few steps. Unchallenged, the Swiss international produced an absolutely ripping strike with that ferocious left foot of his.
Check out the goal below.
Twitter, naturally, went into hysterics.
A lesson to Arsenal’s future opponents: don’t let Xhaka receive the ball from 35 yards out. If you do, make sure to close him down.
Xhaka's goal vs Hull
On Saturday, the 23-year-old produced a shushing celebration that confused plenty. Thankfully, Arsenal fan ‘@grocanon’ was on hand to provide an explanation on Twitter.
“The Xhaka story in English. In an interview for Albanian TV, he said he would be proud to play for Albania national team (It was actually the Kosovo national team).
“Swiss journalists made it into "he's not proud to play for Switzerland". His penalty missed in the Euros put oil on the flame.
“He waited for the moment the cameras would be focused on him. Happened today. He delivered them the message.”
Arsenal missed out on a world-class striker in the transfer window. Still, the signing of Granit Xhaka is looking more and more impressive with each game.
