GRANIT XHAKA once again proved his recklessness after being sent off for a waist-high challenge on Diogo Jota.
The Swiss midfielder left the Gunners down to ten men for 65 minutes of their Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg at Anfield.

It came after Xhaka took Jota out following a cross field pass by left-back Andrew Robertson.
Robertson’s pass put the Liverpool forward through on goal, before Xhaka’s misstimed tackle.
He ended up booting Jota in the stomach as he tried to clear and immediately saw red for denying the goalscoring opportunity.
It is the fifth time Xhaka has been sent off for Arsenal, with the other four coming in the Premier League.
He was last sent for an early shower in Arsenal’s 5-0 hammering at champions Manchester City in August.
No player has received more red cards with four than Xhaka since making his Premier League debut for Arsenal in 2016.
