Granit Xhaka

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is worried that the Gunners might miss on Champions League qualification via a top-four finish in the Premier League as a result of their poor away form.

In his recent interview monitored by Goal, the Swiss international told reporters that the Gunners’ away form could derail their quest to win one of the four spots for next season’s Champions League for the second straight season.

Xhaka and Arsenal missed out on Champions League football in the last campaign after winning just four of their 19 away games in the last campaign under the guidance of legendary manager Arsene Wenger who resigned from his post last summer.

They have recorded a slight improvement on their away form this season with six wins only from the first 18 away games of the season.

Arsenal have the opportunity to secure a seventh away victory of the season in their final game of this campaign which is at the home of Burnley.

The Gunners have to win their penultimate game of the season at home to Brighton and Hove Albion to have a chance of making the top four when they travel to the Turf Moor to take on Burnley on the final day of the season.

Strike partner Alexandre Lacazette was an unused substitute because of a little ankle issue for the Newcastle game but the Frenchman has recovered fully to take his place in the squad for the league clash with the Clarets.

Arsenal’s provisional squad: Bernd Leno, Emiliano Martinez, Ainsley  Maitland-Niles, Shkrodan Mustafi, David Luiz, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos Sokratis, Calum Chambers, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock, Dani Ceballos, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli.
