Absolutely, after what happened three years ago? Being the leader of this team means a lot to me.”

Arsenal’s latest triumph took their tally to six wins from seven league games, propelling them into the title conversation at this early stage, in the lead as the international truce approaches. “If I’m being honest, we have to appreciate where we are, but I’m not looking at the board,” Xhaka said. “I think we’re still having a good game against Tottenham. Still good, but it will be a different game because it’s a derby. You can’t compare the derby to a normal game.”
