Granit Xhaka slammed for ‘ducking’ Scott McTominay’s shot for Manchester United’s goal against Arsenal

first_img PLAY @AFC_Gal Why did Xhaka duck his head ? 🤔— Andrew Robertson (@ARobertson36) September 30, 2019 Read More Granit Xhaka has been blamed for Manchester United’s first-half goal against Arsenal (Optus Sport)Granit Xhaka has been slammed by Arsenal fans for ‘ducking’ Scott McTominay’s shot which led to Manchester United’s first-half goal at Old Trafford.Quality was severely lacking in the opening 45 minutes on Monday evening as both Arsenal and United struggled to create clear-cut chances.But the deadlock was broken in the 45th minute as Marcus Rashford cut the ball back to McTominay on the edge of the area and the Scotland international lashed his effort into the top corner.But subsequent replays have shown that Xhaka moved his head down which allowed the ball to go over him and past Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.ADVERTISEMENT Xhaka ducks out the way of the shot. No goal is ever conceded by Arsenal without him having some stupid hand in it. #MUNARS #AFC— Matt Scott (@Matt5cott) September 30, 2019 Skip Ad by Metro Comment Top articles Full Screen Manchester United captain Harry Maguire Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling / Coming Next 1 min. story Read More Xhaka playing Duck Duck. #MUNARS— BobbyKiarie (@Bobbykiarie) September 30, 2019 Read More Skip Granit Xhaka slammed for ‘ducking’ Scott McTominay’s shot for Manchester United’s goal against Arsenal SPONSORED 1/1 Advertisement Read More About Connatix V67539 AdvertisementAdvertisementSurprisingly, former United captain Roy Keane was reluctant to criticise Xhaka for his failure to stop McTominay’s shot.‘It does come at him pretty quick,’ said Keane.‘I’d be quite happy to criticise him, but it does go quick.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityHowever, Jamie Carragher was happy to dig out Xhaka, who was named as Arsenal’s first-choice captain last week.‘It takes a little nick… listen, I don’t know why, whether you think the ball is hitting your face, you’re putting your head down,’ said the former Liverpool defender.‘It does come quick at him but that thing of putting your arms behind your back and your head down, I don’t think it’s right.’And there were plenty of Arsenal fans who sided with Carragher and slammed Xhaka for appearing to get out of the way of McTominay’s strike.Granit Xhaka, our captain, ducked instead of putting his body on the line he ducks.
