Granit Xhaka's Long-Range Strike Fools Manchester United's David De Gea
David De Gea was all over the shop as Granit Xhaka fired in a long-range strike.
Arsenal opened the scoring against Manchester United thanks to their Swiss midfielder, who smashed in a goal from 25-yards out. But question marks over the goalkeeping.
United's Spanish stopper completely miss-judged the flight of the ball as he was confused by Xhaka's strike.
:see_no_evil: - Oh dear, David de Gea!

Needless to say, his effort between the sticks sent social media into overdrive. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
That's rubbish from De Gea to get beat from there

De Gea isn't looking at his best today.

That's ... that's a weird one. Almost as if De Gea has already taken his chance on the ball going to his left.

Another high profile De Gea mistake? Love to see it.

What a strike by Xhaka, knuckle ball like Cristiano fooled DeGea for a split second...

I think De Gea was deceived more by the way Xhaka shaped to strike it, towards the left post, rather than the swerve per se
