Hector Bellerin has issued a rallying cry as he attempts to diffuse the Granit Xhaka row which threatens to derail the club.

Xhaka mouted ”fu***off” at fans after being booed as he was subbed off in the 61st minute of yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

With the skipper, 27, facing losing his armband over the row, Bellerin became the first Gunners star to break the club’s social media silence.

He tweeted: “We are all humans, we all have emotions, and sometimes it’s not easy dealing with them. It’s time to lift each other up, not to push each other away. We only win when we are together. #COYG”.

His post received plenty of positive replies, with fans praising the popular right-back’s sentiment.

But others repeated calls for Matteo Guendouzi to take the armband and blasted Unai Emery.

Arsenal boss Emery has refused to confirm if Xhaka will keep the captaincy  after his astonishing blast.

And it has been reported that three senior players went to Xhaka’s house to console him last night.

Lucas Torreira looked upset with the boos and Bellerin could be seen comforting his team-mate.

Arsenal have dropped to fifth in the table – four points shy of London rivals Chelsea and in-form Leicester.
