Most fans settled on his strike against the Merseysiders as the best and most important for the Gunners so far:

Free kick against Newcastle. Showed some technique vs thumping his left foot through the ball. Just when I wondered why he wasn't subbed off????????

A few supporters think he should hit them more often:
He should shoot more. With that power, he can make a name for himself alongside Scholes, Lampard, and Gerrard.

Xhaka has come in for justifiable criticism in the past for his performances for Arsenal. There is no doubt that he has been an inconsistent performer since arriving from Borussia Monchengladbach two years ago. Many think he hasn’t justified his £30m price tag.
What isn’t disputed, though, is his ability to shoot from long range. Fans will be hoping for a few more like his free-kick against Newcastle at the weekend in future matches.
