Switzerland star Granit Xhaka is one of the best players at Arsenal this season. His form has propelled the Gunners to the top of the Premier League table. Xhaka has been able to turn his career around at Arsenal. At one point, the Switzerland international was on his way out of Arsenal before manager Mikel Arteta intervened. He has since become unstoppable for the Gunners especially since the start of this season.

Xhaka has played as a deep-lying midfielder for the majority of his Arsenal career on the back of his move to the club from German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Moenchengladbach, but things have changed this season. He has operated more as a box-to-box midfielder in the three Arsenal games this season with end result to show. The Switzerland star already has three goal contributions in those three games, all in the Premier League. To put it into context, he managed three goal contributions in each of the last two seasons.

Swiss international Xhaka has been one of the best Arsenal players this season and only new signing Gabriel Jesus has more goal contributions (five). Xhaka started the season with no goal or assist in the 2-0 away win over London rivals Crystal Palace. He then scored and provided an assist as Arsenal scored four times against Leicester City in their second league game this season. His goal and assist propelled the Gunners to a 4-2 victory at home to Leicester City.Xhaka also provided an assist for the big away win over newly promoted team Bournemouth. He was credited with the assist for the third Arsenal goal scored by Saliba. French international Saliba scored the final goal in the 3-0 away win over the Cherries.
Arsenal have won all their three league games this season and are two points clear at the top of the Premier League log with the influence of Switzerland star Xhaka.
