    The real test is what he does with Xhaka - if he walks straight back into the team then we can kiss this season goodbye, he destroys everything around him and if Arteta can't see that by now then there's no hope for him
    Double standards from Arteta.

    Doesnt he have a problem with Guendouzi and Salaiba's attitude when they are no where near as bad as Xhaka?

    Couldn’t care less about Guendouzi - if it was just Arteta then I’d call it unfair, but every coach he’s worked with has had behavioural problems with him so far. Always starts out fine, but sooner or later there’s always something.

    Hoping there’s still a way back for Saliba though - we’ve registered him as part of our squad for this year, which means he’ll count as homegrown as of next season, so that could be a sign that we’re keeping our options open with him?

    The more you look at what we’re trying to do, the more he doesn’t fit - he really is the odd man out when you put him in a team with all the new faces.

    Fingers crossed Partey and Lokonga put on a show against Burnley - he could literally be gambling his Arsenal career if he puts Xhaka back in the side for spurs and he costs us the game.

He’d probably have spend half his time in CM anyway, given Arteta’s love of inverted fullbacks. What a waste of a year.
    Thought he did OK in MF when he came on against Burnley?

    Yeah, fair play to him - he’s fighting for it! I’m still not sure his ceiling will ever lift him higher than 3rd or 4th choice CM for us, but if he can maintain that Burnley standard then I’d take him over Xhaka or Elneny.
