Swiss International and Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka will be out for an approximated duration of three months after having a serious knee problem during the Super Sunday’s North London derby victory over rivals Tottenham.
Basically, Granit Xhaka was fortuitously injured by Lucas Moura after the Tottenham attacker had been challenged by former Atletico Madrid player, Thomas Partey and was on the floor as Nuno’s side scored their consolation goal in Arsenal’s third win of the Premier League campaign.
Xhaka hobbled off the pitch to be replaced by summer signing Albert Sambi Lokonga but look set to be absent throughout the remaining 2021 football games after a health expert inspected the extent of the injury.
Last Sunday was the 29-year-old first match after serving a three-game ban for a red card in the 5-0 defeat at the Etihad (Manchester City) just before the September 2021 international break.
Unluckily, the severity of the injury will make him absent at the final two international breaks of 2021, with Swiss national team not with their leader for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers match versus Northern Ireland and Lithuania respectively.
In general, together with being an absentee for Arsenal’s previous three matches, Granit has only freshly recovered from COVID-19 having tested positive for the virus during the not-long-ago international break.
