Emery reacts to Xhaka's reaction after being subbed

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said that he is far from pleased with the reaction from Granit Xhaka following his substitution in the 2-2 Premier League draw against Crystal Palace.

The Switzerland international was substituted shortly after the hour mark and he came up with a furious reaction and headed through the tunnel after receiving boos from the home faithful.

Speaking after the game, Emery said that the midfielder's reaction was not required and suggested that the club are likely to make a decision on whether he will remain the captain of the side.

"He's wrong but we are going to speak inside about that situation. I want to be calm but, really, he was wrong in this action," he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

Arsenal were denied a late winner through the VAR and that meant that they had to settle for a share of the spoils despite holding a 2-0 lead after the opening 10 minutes.

They are presently fifth in the Premier League standings but have dropped four points behind the Champions League places. The Gunners have a League Cup tie against Liverpool in midweek.
