A 6-0 win over West Brom in the EFL Cup could not save them from Manchester City who defeated Arsenal by 5-0 on Saturday – a match that saw Granit Xhaka sent off by a red card.

Although still in the earliest of the new Premier League season, only Wolvehampton Wanderers has failed to score this season, while only Crystal Palace have registered fewer shots on target that Arsenal’s seven and there are just five who have created fewer chances than their 26.

“I’m 71. I’ve given this club the best years of my life. At the moment, I’m just a fan,” he said.

“They had two tough games [against Chelsea and Manchester City], the team has potential and I hope they can come back.”
