Granit Xhaka made no reference to the fact that he was sent off during Arsenal’s win over Swansea on Saturday via a post on social media.

The Swiss midfielder was given his marching orders in the second half for a petulant trip before Arsenal went on to claim a 3-2 victory over the Swans at The Emirates.

The straight red card means that Xhaka is set to be suspended for Arsenal’s next three domestic games – against Middlesbrough, Reading and Sunderland.

However, the 23-year-old chose not to mention his sending off with his post on Instagram after the game, preferring to praise his team-mates for their performance.

Xhaka posted the picture above on his personal account and wrote: “Three very important points today and I’m proud of my team and thank the fans for their massive support. 👍 ⚓#GX29”

The win made it six in a row for Arsenal in the Premier League and lifted them up to second in the table, level on points with leaders Manchester City.
