Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka won’t be part of the Gunners squad for the Premier League clash with Leicester City.

This is according to Arsenal manager Unai Emery who revealed that the Swiss international is not in the best frame of mind to help the team at the moment.

Premier League highflyers Leicester City host Arsenal in a week 12 league game billed for the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening and Granit Xhaka is expected to miss out on the game.

Granit Xhaka has been left out of the Arsenal team since the Swiss international used expletives towards the fans during the home game against fellow London side Crystal Palace in October.

The former Borussia Moenchengladbach star was angered by the chorus of boos that greeted his substitution during that Crystal Palace game which ended in a disappointing 2-2 draw.

Arsenal blew a two-goal lead during the Crystal Palace game.

The Gunners are in the middle of a four-match winless run in all competitions ahead of the Leicester City Game and that has piled pressure on manager Unai Emery who could lose his job if Arsenal record defeat against the Foxes who have six points more on the Premier League table after 11 games.
