Arsenal Fans React To Another Narrow Win As Xhaka Is Sent Off


Arsenal recorded yet another narrow victory as they overcame Swansea 3-2, despite Granit Xhaka’s second-half red card.

A quickfire brace from on-form Theo Walcott, who is enjoying one of his finest ever seasons in Arsenal colours, gave the Gunners a 2-0 lead, but Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled the Swans back into the encounter.

Arsene Wenger’s side looked to have been clear to collect the three points after Mesut Ozil bagged the third on his birthday, but Borja Baston’s goal and Xhaka’s red card offence set the game up for a tense finish.

Theo Walcott then spurned two opportunities late on to put the game beyond Swansea, but Bob Bradley’s side were unable to capitalise as the home side extended their winning streak.

The defeat saw Swansea equal their worst ever start to a Premier League season, with the Welsh outfit looking likely to be involved in a relegation tussle for the 2016/17 campaign.

Quite the opposite can be claimed about Arsenal, who look fit and firing to be in with a real chance of winning the title this season.

Here’s the best reaction from Twitter, with more than a few Arsenal fans needing a drink after an anxious ninety minutes!
