Betting on Arsenal's next captain

Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka caused a stir with his angry reaction to being substituted during the Gunners' 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday and the Swiss skipper appears to be at serious risk of losing the armband.

Ladbrokes bet on who will captain the side for Saturday's league match at home to Wolves and make striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the 8-11 favourite.

Xhaka is a 6-4 shot to lead out the side and right back Hector Bellerin, who has only just worked his way back from a long-term cruciate knee ligament injury, is a 7-1 chance.

Arsenal were on the wrong end of two VAR calls against the Eagles but their protests are unlikely to prompt a rethink from the authorities on the future use of the technology.

Ladbrokes offer 9-2 that VAR is ditched by the Premier League for the 2020-21 campaign.
