Granit Xhaka tunes in to watch Borussia Monchengladbach lose 2-0 to Bayern Munich on Saturday evening

Granit Xhaka didn’t have a great weekend.

The Arsenal midfielder was forced to sit out the north London side’s frustrating goalless draw with promoted side Middlesbrough at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon as the Switzerland midfielder served his suspension.

Xhaka picked up a red card for a professional foul in the second half of the north London side’s 3-2 win against Bob Bradley’s Swansea City last weekend to rule the summer signing out of Saturday’s home game.

With Arsenal dropping points on Saturday afternooon, Xhaka tuned in to watch former club Borussia Monchengladbach make the trip to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

However, Xhaka suffered further disappointment after Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa both scored in a comfortable 2-0 win over the Switzerland international’s former employers.
