ARSENAL fans tore into Granit Xhaka after he gave the ball away twice for Valencia's opener.

The Swiss midfielder was even labelled "the worst player of all time in the PL" as some supporters called for the 26-year-old to be sold.

Xhaka's carelessness was just the start of some shockingly soft play in the seconds before Mouctar Diakhaby headed the Spanish visitors in front 11 minutes into this Europa League semi-final first leg.

But even Alexandre Lacazette hitting back with a quick double – to put Arsenal 2-1 up – failed to save Xhaka from a savaging.

One fan described his display as "very horrible" while another alleged he had "no brain cells".

Which, if true, means Xhaka would be unable to confirm if this accusation from another supporter was true: "Since the game started I've counted 4 times that Xhaka has given the ball away. 4 times in 13 minutes. Idiot!"

Some tweets suggested Valencia had clearly identified Xhaka as the most vulnerable part of an Arsenal side which has slipped to fifth in the Premier League.

One post read: "Xhaka again, acres of space and he gives it away. Valencia are targeting him because they know he's weak and immobile."

And for another fan Xhaka's early performance should seal his departure in the summer.

He wrote: "…bye bye i don't want to see you next season. The worst player of all time in the PL."
