I can picture in my head the shot he had that Lloris had to palm away, he rinsed Pavard cutting inside and forced a save, so he definitely had at least one shot on target
He's quite the opposite, he has his head up more than most footballers. Something that even the commentary picked up on last night. He has plenty of substance, which is why he has bags of goals, assists and chances created since his time way back at Lille.
Just seen post above so Ill try to merge them
Who scored and the official world cup site have him down as no shots on target
He has substance to a degree but he never does anything in the Champions League, never does anything against the top top players for me, always goes missing in regards to end product, it's why he is a Chelsea level player. He is quality but even his numbers indicate he is good but not that amazing whenever he plays a level up he goes missing and last night for me he did nothing of any substance, his job was to put the ball into the box for the target men, he did it once in 90 minutes
He was meant to be on the wing, the wingers were Chadli and Hazard with Witsel, Fellani, Dembele and De Bruyne central, Hazard and Chadli providing the width and crosses, Chadli attempted 11 crosses
Because Xhaka constantly does the things he is expected to do really well, passing he is absolutely superb at, the stats indicate so, it's not his fault Wenger trying getting him to play as a defensive midfielder, if you let him spray he is a brilliant player
Granit Xhaka & Kevin De Bruyne are the only two Premier League players this season with at least 2,000 successful passes, 7 assists, and 50 tackles.
Think he had the highest average pass length as well
