Granit Xhaka enjoyed some quality time with his fiance Leonita on Tuesday night after the midfielder helped Arsenal to book their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The Switzerland international was named in Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up for their trip to Non League side Sutton United in the fifth round of the competition.

Lucas Perez and Theo Walcott scored either side of half-time to seal a comfortable 2-0 win and set up a last-eight meeting with another Non League club Lincoln City at the Emirates Stadium.

Xhaka has endured a mixed first season at the north London club after Arsenal signed the defensive midfielder in a £33m deal from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer transfer window.

And the 23-year-old took a break from his busy football schedule to head out for dinner with his fiancee Leonita ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Liverpool in their next game on 4 March.

Xhaka posted the above photo on his Instagram page minutes after his partner posted the same snap on her page.
