Granit Xhaka Sends Message Of Support To Aubameyang After Penalty Miss

While there were a lot of positives to take away from yesterday’s performance against Spurs in the North London Derby, the frustration of poor officiating and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s late penalty miss continues to linger, leaving Gunners fans with a nagging sense of what might have been.


 

1It appeared as though Arsenal would take all three points back to the Emirates with them when they were awarded a 90th minute penalty


It seemed as if justice would be done after Tottenham were awarded a penalty earlier in the game despite replays showing an offside decision should have been flagged before the foul occurred in the box.


 

2However, it wasn’t to be as Aubameyang saw his penalty saved by Hugo Lloris…

The Gabonese striker, usually so reliable in front of goal, couldn’t convert from 12 yards or on the rebound.


 

3TV replays once again showed how officials had made a startling oversight, however…

How have both the referee and linesman not spotted Vertonghen encroaching there?


 

4In the aftermath, Granit Xhaka was quick to send a message of support to Aubameyang via social media…

The Swiss midfielder captioned his picture “We win together, we lose together, we draw together – keep your head up bro, we all love you”.

A great message of support from Xhaka and an important showing of solidarity ahead of another huge week for the Gunners, who meet Stade Rennais in the last 16 of the Europa League and Manchester United in a potentially decisive match in the race for a top four spot in the Premier League.
