Granit Xhaka has taken to social media to reveal his excitement ahead of his return to action with Arsenal this weekend.

The midfielder has been on international duty with Switzerland in recent days for his country’s World Cup 2018 qualifiers.

Xhaka has made a strong start to life at Arsenal following his summer transfer to the north London club and has earned plenty of praise for his performances so far this season.

He has already scored two goals for his new club – against Nottingham Forest and Hull City – and will be hoping to feature from the start when Arsenal host Swansea City at The Emirates this weekend.

Xhaka posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday afternoon as he turned his attentions back to Premier League affairs.

Xhaka wrote the following caption: “After two successful matches with the national team, back home to Arsenal! ⚓️#GX29”

Arsenal head into Saturday’s game looking to make it six successive Premier League wins this season.
