Instead, Arsenal kept them at bay with a determined and dogged performance, which are characteristics not usually associated with them.

“If you are willing to help your team, if you are willing to accept that at some moments you are not going to play the game that you want, then good things are going to happen.” The year is barely a fortnight old, but already Xhaka has served up enough drama to reassure Amazon it made the right decision to film a documentary of Arsenal this season.

They certainly were not on show at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, when Mikel Arteta’s side were dumped out of the FA Cup.

Ben White was at the heart of it all, having arguably his best game since joining Arsenal in the summer.

Arteta had vowed in the wake of that defeat there would be a reaction from his side, and the way Arsenal clung on for a 0-0 draw meant he was true to his word.

But the fact Gabriel Martinelli equalled the centre-back’s number of tackles over the 90 minutes emphasised how this was a team effort.
