Nobody Can Believe What Granit Xhaka Did As Tom Cleverley Scored The Winner Against Arsenal
As Tom Cleverley followed in to slam home a dramatic late winner for Watford and inflict more away day misery for Arsenal on Saturday evening, Granit Xhaka has been spotted picking his nose.
The Gunners were 1-0 up through captain Per Mertesacker in the 39th minute at Vicarage Road, but the introduction of Troy Deeney, with the physical threat he carries, in the second half, turned the game in Watford's favour and the Hornets skipper levelled matters from the spot in the 71st minute after Richarlison won a controversial penalty.
Then in the 92nd minute, Cleverley pounced after a goalmouth scramble to hand Arsenal a third away defeat on the road this term.
And eagle-eyed viewers were quick to pick up on the fact that as Cleverley ran in to bag the winning goal, Arsenal midfielder Xhaka was the epitome of laziness.
Not only was he completely half-arsed, not bothering to break a sweat, track the run of Watford's No.8 and try and prevent the perfectly avoidable goal, pictures of him having a good dig up his nostrils have been doing the rounds.

We know sometimes you just have to get up there and pick a winner, but the Swiss international should probably be a bit more interested in not letting his man run free and find the net.
Here's what fans have made of Xhaka's decision to try and get a crow out of his nose:
Xhaka picking his nose as Cleverly gets free to score is the most Arsenal thing ever

We brought granit xhaka for 30 million plus and he's been absolutely awful. Mario lemina half that price and twice the player

I continue to be unimpressed by Granit Xhaka's passing. He lacks consistency and can't seem to pass forward well at all: pic.twitter.com/RPiJzznQ0u

Granit Xhaka deserves to be dropped for what he did at the weekend. That's simply not good enough and he needs to be taught a lesson. #AFC

Troy Deeney ripped into Arsenal and their lack of mental toughness after the game, saying the following to BT Sport:
"I've heard Wenger's already saying the penalty is the reason they lost. Well, I'm not going to be one to tell Mr Wenger about himself, but there's a reason they lost and it wasn't because of one penalty.
"It's having a bit of cojones. Whenever I play against Arsenal, I'll go up and think 'let me whack the first one and see who wants it'.
"I came on today and jumped up with Mertesacker - I didn't even have to jump, actually. I nodded it down, the crowd got up - 'yeah we've got somebody who can win it' - and they all just backed off.
"For me as a player, I just think 'happy days'. That's my strength - if you're going to let me do my strength against you, you're going to have a tough afternoon."
