Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has praised midfielder, Granit Xhaka for his outstanding performance during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Emirates.

"You've got to be thrown in at some point and it was a real game against a big team that's unbeaten in the last 13 games", Spackman said on LFC TV. We can not drop points, we need to work hard, keep improving and let's see on that day if we have the chance to do it. "If you see this game, you can see we are ready for the top four". With Xhaka I am happy, because first he's a very good player, and he has a very good commitment for us.

"I want, with each player to continue and hope we can do better", Metro Uk quoted Emery as saying. We have great character.

"So are Liverpool one dimensional or it's all on the front foot and you've got to go and score four goals? No".

Liberated by the phenomenal Lucas Torreira alongside him, Xhaka was as dynamic and destructive as he has been in an Arsenal shirt. But by nearly every other measure this was a totally different player to the midfielder who so regularly disappointed in the biggest games under Arsène Wenger. "He is so important".

"It's pleasing we are creating those chances, but we could have been a bit more ruthless and maybe not put as much pressure on ourselves not to concede to win the game".

"I think it's because he's playing week in week out".

While speaking to Standard, the young English central defender explained how ridiculous the Premier League is at the moment, "The level of the Premier League now is ridiculous, it's relentless really, you can't slip up at any point or teams will capitalize".
