Granit Xhaka appeared to be in a philosophical mood as Arsenal continued their preparations for their Premier League trip to West Ham United on Saturday night.

The Gunners returned to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend as Arsene Wenger’s men secured a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at The Emirates.

Xhaka made his sixth Premier League start of the season against the Cherries and put in a strong display as the Switzerland international continues to adapt to the rigours of English football.

The 24-year-old midfielder joined the north London side from German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach during the summer transfer window.

And the midfielder seemed to be in a philosophical mood in the build-up to Saturday’s game.

Xhaka posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Time is the only wealth, on which we can be stingy without feeling ashamed. ★★★ ⚓#GX29 @AFC Arsenal #IWILL #UnderArmour”
