Granit Xhaka landed himself in hot water for reacting angrily to Arsenal fans last week, but Pep Guardiola understands his reaction.
Unai Emery will leave Granit Xhaka out of the firing line on Saturday when Arsenal host Wolves at Emirates Stadium.
Granit Xhaka has opened up on the abuse aimed his way as he explained the reasons behind his reaction to being substituted last weekend.
Unai Emery said Granit Xhaka was "devastated and sad" after he was booed off against Crystal Palace, but will he pick him against Wolves?
Unai Emery was happy with Mesut Ozil's display in Arsenal's 10-goal thriller at Liverpool on Wednesday.
Hector Bellerin will captain Arsenal in Granit Xhaka's unsurprising absence at Liverpool in the EFL Cup.
Mesut Ozil looks set for an Arsenal first-team return against Liverpool - and incredibly he could be named captain for the EFL Cup game.
Granit Xhaka's venting at Arsenal fans would be unlikely to occur at Liverpool due to the squad's discipline, according to Pep Lijnders.
Granit Xhaka is devastated and should apologise for his spat with Arsenal fans, but the club will not rush him, manager Unai Emery said.
Granit Xhaka's response to jeers from Arsenal supporters cannot be tolerated, according to former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Petit.
