Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“I think we played a great match… Atletico had one shot on our goal and scored. It’s unbelievable because we didn’t want that today, we wanted to have a good result at home. But it’s 1-1 and now we must focus on next week.” Xhaka told the club website.The 25-year-old feels that Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak proved to be crucial in keeping his side in the game.“No, I don’t think so.

A 1-1 draw isn’t the result we wanted but nothing is finished,” analysed Xhaka.On the return leg, he added: “We know we must score one goal. We must play like we did today, we must focus for over 90 minutes because you can see it’s always dangerous against Atletico.”last_img
