Arsenal midfielder Xhaka breaks silence after error against Burnley 

Granit Xhaka has apologized after his mistake during Arsenal's draw against Burnley on Saturday afternoon. 

Arsenal dropped points away at Turf Moor with a 1-1 score after a frustrating second half that saw them denied a penalty for handball and denied a goal by a series of blocks and the woodwork. The Gunners took the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before Granit Xhaka attempted to clear the ball from inside his own box, only to cannon the ball against Chris Wood's hip and into the net.

There was little Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal could do as the ball bounced straight into the net from relatively close range, and plenty of criticism has followed following Xhaka's mistake. 

"I hold my hands up for their goal and I’m sorry for the mistake. That’s football and right now I feel just as frustrated as all of you."

Plenty of Arsenal fans sent their messages of support to Xhaka on the back of that post, and one of the midfielder's teammates also replied.

Aubameyang, whose goal was canceled out by the error, replied to the post, saying 'We move bro' with a fist, bicep, and heart emojis, so all appears to have been forgiven despite the disappointment at Turf Moor.
