Arsenal have enjoyed a record-breaking start to the Premier League season under Arteta, hitting 50 points by the halfway stage of the season. The Gunners top the table by five points from Manchester City and have a game in hand on the defending champions. Xhaka has praised his manager and explained what makes the Spaniard such an impressive coach.

“Last season, we lost the first three games of the season. Some people were already at the end of their patience. But now you see what can happen when you give a coach time. After all, this is his first ever stint as head coach. He is something very special,” the Arsenal midfielder told 20 min. “I’ve had many coaches in my career, but never one like Arteta. He seems like he is focused only on football 24 hours a day. He always has a plan A, B – and maybe even a plan Z. But he’s not only top tactically, but he’s also top as a person.”
