Xhaka found the top corner from 30 yards in second-half stoppage time to secure the Gunners' 4-1 win at Hull City on Saturday afternoon - and Coquelin was full of praise for the strike after the match.
“I think it was a superb finish," the French midfielder told Arsenal Player. “I was right behind him and I don't know if he was going to shoot, I was screaming at him 'shoot, shoot' in German.
“That's a great strike to be fair, a great first goal to score for the club and hopefully many more to come as well. I think it was Mo who passed him the ball so I can't claim the assist, but I'll take a bit of it!"
