The Amount Of Power In Granit Xhaka’s Left Foot Will Astound You

Xhaka’s free kick was sublime, but Arsenal had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s 11-game winning run came to an end Sunday following a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Luka Milivojevic scored twice from the spot for the home side, while Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were in on the goals for the Gunners.

After Crystal Palace had taken the lead just before halftime, Arsenal answered through Xhaka in the 51st. Yes, the 26-year-old Swiss has a left foot like a hammer. 

Arsenal’s second was pretty special, too. Alex Lacazette provided a Hand of God moment in the buildup.

But fantasy owners everywhere (myself included) were left disappointed with the FPL’s decision not a award Lacazette the assist.

Unfortunately for Xhaka, his free kick heroics would be undone in the 82nd minute after he fell for Wilfried Zaha’s twinkle toe antics in the box. Xhaka fouled him, and Milivojevic salvaged a point.

Arsenal sits fourth with 22 points from 10 matches, four points behind leaders Liverpool. Crystal Palace is in 14th, three points above the relegation zone.
