Arsenal fans have blasted Granit Xhaka after he was seen laughing with the Eintracht Frankfurt players after the dismal Europa League defeat.

The Gunners’ season hit a new low on Thursday evening as Unai Emery’s struggling side were beaten 2-1 by German club Frankfurt at a half-empty Emirates.

Xhaka made his first start for Arsenal since he was stripped of the captaincy following a clash with his own supporters but could not prevent the Premier League club from slipping to another deflating defeat.

Arsenal took the lead through new captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but a second-half brace from Japan star Daichi Kamada turned the game on its head and helped Frankfurt seal a famous victory in north London.

Emery’s side were booed off at the Emirates and a number of Arsenal fans noticed Xhaka ‘laughing and joking’ with the Frankfurt players after the defeat.

The 2-1 loss means Arsenal missed the chance to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League with a game to spare.
