There is no way back for Xhaka unless he apologises.’ Comment Arsenal threw away a two-goal lead against Palace (Picture: Getty)Ian Wright agreed that Xhaka must apologise to Arsenal fans as he ‘owes them a lot more’ than to react as he did at the Emirates.‘Players getting booed is not the best, but this is the captain,’ the former Arsenal forward said on Match of the Day.‘They are frustrated that he hasn’t run off the pitch. I’ve seen him before bolt off when he’s substituted.

Quantis quickly follows Bet Generator, which allows players to set desired betting amounts and potential returns based on their appetite for risk – and in turn generate a customised bet.
