Arsenal continued their stunning start to the Premier League season with a hard-thought 1-0 win at Chelsea on Sunday & Granit Xhaka understandably couldn’t quite contain his emotions in a glorious post-match interview.
Mikel Arteta’s side returned to the summit of the Premier League after beating Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Asked about the atmosphere in the away end shortly after the full-time whistle, Xhaka told BT Sport: “You the see Atmosphere, it’s f*cking unbelievable.”
Des Kelly then issued an apology to the viewers for the language used by Xhaka before resuming the interview.
“You can see the atmosphere is unbelievable, I mean from the start until the end I think we deserved to win today, we were the much much much better team today,” the Switzerland international said.
“We are so happy that everything is going well at the moment. We are keeping everything the coach is telling us.
“Listen, after the season nobody asks you how you win in November or December or January. We are trying to get a lot of points as possible and after let’s see where we head.
“The derby, these two teams have big history even if they play against each other this is football, sometimes you need stuff like that.”
On Manchester City’s late winner against Fulham, Xhaka added: “Lucky for them but if you play over 60 minutes with one less (player) you deserve to win.”
In his own post-match interview, Arteta said: “It’s another step forward. To prove ourselves that we can do it, that we can play at that level against these sorts of players and teams, And hopefully they will have more belief.
“I think we are a really young team but today we played like a mature team, we use the right words.
“Composure, it’s determination, it’s quality, it’s courage to do it in these scenarios, and that’s the steps we have to take as a team, and today we have taken that step.”
"From the start until the end I think we deserved to win today."
"We were the much much better team today."
Apologies for missing the top of the interview – some fruity language from Granit Xhaka… 🤭
