Coquelin happy for Xhaka after Arsenal goal

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin was happy for Granit Xhaka after his goal in their rout of Hull City.

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!"
