Granit Xhaka can't wait for our first home game of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
The Switzerland midfielder captained us for our opening-day win at Newcastle United, and is looking forward to running out for the first time this season at Emirates Stadium.
"I missed this place if I’m honest," Xhaka told Arsenal Player. "I missed the guys, I missed the ball and it’s exciting to be back and working again to make a great season.
"I think this season won’t be easy, but we know each other more and the coach knows the players better. We know him, what he wants, the mentality of the staff and as I’ve said before, I’m so excited because this is the second year now under Unai Emery and we want to make a good season this year.
"I’m excited for the new season. We had in my opinion not a bad season last year; we got to the final, we lost the final, we were good in the Premier League until the last five games. We have to improve some small points and after I’m sure we will get back there, where this club has to be."
