It was far from a fairy tale start to Premier League life for Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka.
The midfielder, who was left on the bench for much of his side’s 4-3 defeat to Liverpool, was thrown on as his side’s afternoon was unravelling.
And to be fair to the Swiss international, he did make Premier League history in the 24 minutes he was on the field.
Just not in the way he probably wanted.
Some fans believe the 23-year-old will bring the steel which has long been lacking from Arsenal’s midfield.
And Xhaka showed he was up for the fight, making six tackles during his brief cameo.
Unfortunately for the Swiss midfielder, none was successful.
In fact he committed four fouls, the most of any player in the opening weekend of a Premier League game ever.
And he was given a yellow card for his troubles, too.
It doesn’t get much easier for Xhaka and his Arsenal teammates who travel to Champions Leicester next week hoping to pick up their first points of the season.
