Granit Xhaka has taken to social media to praise Arsenal’s mental strength after their impressive comeback in the FA Cup third round on Saturday night.

The Gunners found themselves 1-0 down at half-time at Deepdale after a poor first-half showing.

However, the north London side battled back after the break and ended up booking their place in the fourth round thanks to goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal were outplayed by the home side in the first half as the Gunners struggled to get a foothold in the game but improved significantly after the break.

And Xhaka used his personal Instagram account to express his delight at how Arsenal managed to get themselves back into the game.

Xhaka posted the picture above on the app and wrote the caption: “Today we proved that every match has it’s own importance and difficulty. A great comeback, see you in the next round! 🏆👌”
