Former Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has sent a message of support to his former teammates and backed them to recover quickly from their recent setbacks in the Premier League title race. 

Arsenal suffered back-to-back defeats this week, first falling to a shock 2-0 loss at home to Aston Villa before being defeated 1-0 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Despite these setbacks, Xhaka believes that Arsenal still have a good chance of clinching the Premier League title this season. He pointed out their impressive 11-match unbeaten run that saw them reach the top of the league table before the recent defeats and emphasized that there are still six games left to play.

“This is part of the game, I think it was 10 or 11 games unbeaten. When you lose one game, it doesn’t mean you lost everything already,” Xhaka said in a recent interview. “There are six games left in the Premier League, and there is still a big chance to get the Premier League title. I wish them all the best for sure because I am still supporting them, I am still in contact with the staff and players and also still watching the games.”


Xhaka, who left Arsenal last summer to join Bayer Leverkusen, also expressed his hope that Arsenal can go on to win trophies under manager Mikel Arteta. He acknowledged the team’s progress in recent seasons, reaching the latter stages of competitions but falling short of silverware, and believes that they are very close to achieving success.

“I hope so because the team, the staff and the football club as well deserve to win trophies,” Xhaka stated. “They are very close this year as well like it was last year but football is about small details. I hope they can do it this year.”

Despite the current challenges facing Arsenal, Xhaka’s words of encouragement and support will undoubtedly boost the team’s morale as they look to bounce back in the title race. With six games remaining in the Premier League season, Arsenal still have a chance to make a strong finish and potentially secure their first league title since 2004.
