“It’s an unbelievable feeling to score my first goal at this stadium,” Xhaka told Arsenal Player. “The atmosphere was excellent. To score the first goal in an important win against Manchester United… it’s a dream come true.
“I think we gave a really good performance today. Everybody ran for each other, fought for each other, and that helps you look better.
"I’m really satisfied to have been able to help the team, and I hope that continues in the coming weeks.”
