Arsenal boss Arteta: We're changing Xhaka's game

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta hailed the performance of Granit Xhaka for victory over Leicester.

Xhaka struck in the 4-2 win.

Arteta said, "Granit is arriving in the box and he should have scored last week and he could have scored two today because he had another header, and that's what we need. If you want to be at the top then we're going to have to score a lot of goals and we cannot rely on two or three players.

"He's there to play the role that we want and Granit has certain characteristics, but we can develop other characteristics because he has ability to do it, and when Fabio Vieira plays in that position he will have a different role because his qualities are different, and it's the same with Martin, so the team has to adapt, but the players as well have to play with an eye on the goal and the feeling that they want to score."
