SNAPPED: Xhaka demands better from Arsenal pals Kolasinac, Martinez after Cup triumph

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka held an on pitch debrief with Sead Kolasinac after his error in their FA Cup win at Sheffield United.

Kolasinac was attempting to clear a long throw into the box but panicked, blasted the ball against Shkodran Mustafi and into the path of Blades forward David McGoldrick to score.

The Mirror says Xhaka had a good game for the Gunners, but it was his actions following the final whistle that caught the eye.

The details of the conversation are not known, but Xhaka was seen pulling Kolasinac and goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez over to one side for a chat.

It seems he wanted to get the bottom of the confusion that led to the goal to ensure something similar doesn't happen again.

Photographers snapped both players explaining their side of the story before the trio made their way back to the changing room.
