Arsenal fans spot what Granit Xhaka did to Bukayo Saka following goal against Norwich


Arsenal fans noticed Granit Xhaka’s attempt to trip up Bukayo Saka during the win against Norwich City on Sunday afternoon.

Saka broke the deadlock at Carrow Road, finding the back of the net in the sixth minute after a swift counter-attack involving himself, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard.

The Gunners then doubled their lead through Scottish left-back Kieran Tierney before Saka scored against just after the hour mark, showcasing his exceptional talent with a driven shot into the bottom left corner after evading a number of opposition defenders.

Alexandre Lacazette added a fourth from the penalty spot before Hale End graduate Emile Smith Row netted his eighth Premier League goal of the season to clinch all three points for Mikel Arteta’s side.
