Arsenal Midfielder Granit Xhaka says the London team will be motivated by the criticism levelled at them after their poor start to the new English Premier League season.
Arsenal lost 2-0 at home to Chelsea on Sunday as Romelu Lukaku marked his second debut with a goal before Reece James wrapped up a deserved 2-0 victory for the visitors.
That followed an opening-day defeat at Brentford as Arsenal endured their worst start to a campaign in the top four leagues.
Xhaka, who signed a new deal with the club before the start of the season despite being heavily linked with a move to Italy, said things need to improve as the squad seek to prove their naysayers wrong.
Xhaka captained Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, a big turnaround from being stripped of the armband by Unai Emery in November 2019 after an outburst at supporters and then appearing set for a move to Roma this summer.
