Granit Xhaka was certainly in a good mood ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners midfielder has plenty to smile about after a promising start to his career in north London following a return of two goals in nine appearances in all competitions so far.

Xhaka capped an exciting start to the 2016-17 Premier League season on Sunday night after the 24-year-old captained Switzerland for the first time in a 2-1 win against Andorra.

The Swiss midfielder was all smiles as he posted the above photo on his Instagram page on Wednesday night ahead of Arsenal’s home clash against Swansea on Saturday afternoon.

Xhaka wrote the following caption on the photo-sharing app:

“👉Always Happy. 😄 ⚓️ #GX29”

The Switzerland international completed a £33m move to Arsenal from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in May.
