    The Swiss international footballer left Arsenal for Bayer Leverkusen last summer and now finds himself in a title race once again.
    Bayer Leverkusen sit ten points clear of the Bavarians(Bayern Munich) as they still not lost  any game all season, with many  supporting it to go on and win themselves the Bundesliga title.

    Xhaka, however, is refusing to get ahead of himself, having seen just how wrong things can go last season.

    "It's good and we can be proud of it, but nothing is won yet," he said after his side's 2-0 win over Koln. "I'm speaking about my own experience of what happened last season.

    "I think it was similar points over second and we didn't win the league so I know the experience and this is what I share with the dressing room as well. Of course ten points is a lot in football when you have ten games left but ten points when there's another 30 points you can take, it's not over."

    Xhaka confessed that his Leverkusen teammates have even turned to him for advice on how to handle a title race.

    "For sure and they know, they're asking me day by day, 'You've been in this situation as well, how was it? What happened?'," he added.

    “I tried to explain it but you can’t explain with words, you have to feel it, that’s why you have to stay humble you have to take it day by day and let’s see where we are after 34 games.”

    "I tried to explain it but you can't explain with words, you have to feel it, that's why you have to stay humble. You have to take it day by day and let's see where we are after 34 games."

    Arsenal remain well in the fight for their own title glory this campaign as well. Mikel Arteta's side head into today's's clash with Sheffield United looking to close the gap to leaders Liverpool to just two points.
