Gary Neville Breaks Twitter After Sky Pundit Seemingly Unravels Reason Behind Granit Xhaka Stat

Sky commentator Martin Tyler pointed out that Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has had more touches of the ball than any other player this season, but Gary Neville believes it’s only because he can’t control the ball properly.

The stat, revealed during Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Brom shocked fellow commentator Neville who said it’s because: ​“He takes four touches when he should be taking one”, seemingly suggesting the Swiss midfielder’s ball control isn’t great.

​​As reported in The Sun, Twitter users had differing reactions to Neville’s analysis of the midfielder, who has received heavy criticism from his own fans, rival fans, pundits and critics alike since his £35m move from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016.

Arsenal’s draw at the Hawthorns left them three points behind fourth placed Liverpool, and are also 12 goals worse off than the Reds. They face a crucial game with Chelsea on Wednesday despite injuries to six first team players.
