Granit Xhaka has to control his game says Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has urged for more control from Granit Xhaka after the midfielder picked up his ninth red card in three years against Burnley.

The Swiss international saw red during the Gunners' 2-1 victory and might have cost his team two points, but for a late winner from Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates.

"Xhaka's red card, honestly I have to look at it again, but the noises I heard suggest it was a red card," said Wenger.

"He has to control his game, and not punish the team with his lack of control and his tackling.

"We don't encourage our midfielders to go down in tackles, we want them to stand up and not make these kind of fouls.

So if it is a bad tackle then it is a red card."

Arsenal currently occupy second spot in the standings with 47 points from 22 games.
