Granit Xhaka Hallall sot ke ken lojtari me i mir ne fush Edhe pse isha ne stadium per Manchester United Sot ishe ti ai qe na ndale Urime dhe me shum gola ne ndeshjet e ardhshme

NASA have confirmed that all Man united fans have returned to earth safely

Where did you hide Paul Pogba?

Xhaka what a wonderful game and goal legend❤🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴 from Somalia

Somebody should tell xhaka to remove pogba Fred and matic from his pocket 😥😥

Lagend says that de gea still searching for the ball😆

That goal was beyond science... boomxhakaboom😎😎😎

Great Performance Papa do the best. Best wishes from Somalia🇸🇴❤🙏

My heart is so full with joy, thanks for that Xhakaboom goal. Thanks for making me this happy MY LOVE❤

I knew you will score, your a bloody gunner man. Cheers !

Proud to be gunners 👌💞🤛🤜

I am a Chelsea fan but today I was in support of my neighbors, Arsenal. Your shot was superb ,you rounded off de gea to the nearest zero.

I said it in your last post that you are going to have an impact on this game, Much love Xhaka-boom Let's keep this going guys champions league football is looking good

Owned De Gea like a Boss! ❣️💯

My man of the match is Leno ! He was immense today ! I think his performances recently have convinced Cech to hang up his boots...

United noisy fans silence proudly sponsored by #XhakaBooom!😊

Today you played well! Thank you!!!!!

U make de gea look like karius. Well played 👍🏻👏👏

Top performance! You deserve it! Future captain!

I love the spirit u showed from the beginning till the end. Always turn up in big occassions#xhakaboom

The sad part of it is that, you guys are always good as lion in talking in social media but when face opponent on the pitch of football you become cats. Play the game and give Gunners fans joy and not all this unpleasant display you guys are always giving us.

I'm Chelsea fan. but i support you tommorow come on Gunners

Love Xhaka’ s team loyalty

Must win Tomorrow 🙏🏽🔝 Gunners for ever ❣️

Stop misplacing simple passes and I'll be a happy man

Bro you have to understand that you play for Arsenal. You should leave your Heart on the pitch. You should play for the badge and show that you understand that. Always saying this kind of things be with us. We are always with you and you should play stronger

What happened to the long range goals you used to score. What did Emery tell you bro.


Xhaka try and avoid unnecessary yellow cards.also red card have been Soo many.some could have been avoided.Torreira, lacazette,and skrotis were all avoidable.all the best

With that statement "special sunday" of #GX34_, I said Congratulations to Arsenal in advance. #COYG_

Arsenal will win man united tomorrow 2-0 Xhaka will score tomorrow Up gunners One love

Sorry about the airport incident. Infuriated fans had their say!!!

I will be there in the Northbank. Play well and let's do this together as the Arsenal family. CIYG'S

talk to Mustafi before the game infact call him ASAP n tell him no monkey business tomorrow he always messes things up

Yeah duu we can make it❤️💪🏻

Count me out because you guys have let me down on many occasions

Here in kampala Uganda its gonna be a shameless nyt for us arsenal fans if man u beat us
