Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday and one player has been the subject of criticism due to his actions during the game.

Granit Xhaka, who has recently inherited the captain’s armband at the Emirates, was accused of avoiding Manchester United’s Scott McTominay’s effort which gave the hosts the lead.

The 27-year-old put his hands behind his back and looked to turn away as the effort came in from the Scotsman. However, the argument is that Xhaka tried to head the ball away as opposed to avoiding contact. (via @TheAFCnewsroom)

The Daily Mail reported that fans were laying the blame at the Switzerland international’s door as they believed he intentionally ‘ducked’.

Arsenal fans were quick to defend Xhaka and one supporter believes that it was “complete nonsense” and add that the ball took a deflection before sailing past the skipper.

Here you will find some of the best reactions from Arsenal fans:
