‘Xhaka has a notorious reputation for picking up yellow and red cards’
Arsenal legend, David Seaman, has warned midfielder Granit Xhaka to ‘keep his head’ when the Gunners clash with Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s north London derby.
The midfielder has impressed for Mikel Arteta’s side so far this season and has been supported by the club’s fans.
However, the Switzerland international has a notorious reputation for picking up yellow and red cards and Seaman has urged the 30-year-old to keep calm against Tottenham, especially when he faces the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.
“When you talk about those two in midfield for Spurs Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur, I am thinking, ‘Xhaka, keep your head’,’ Seaman said.
“Keep your head because these are the sort of games where he can get into trouble.”
The kick-off time for the Arsenal vs Tottenham match is 12.30 pm.
