Granit Xhaka immediately dropped the F-bomb in an impassioned BT Sport interview after Arsenal's crucial 1-0 win over Chelsea.
The Gunners dominated the Blues on their own turf from start to finish and were rewarded when a Bukayo Saka corner was prodded in by defender Gabriel Magalhaes in the second half. Mikel Arteta's side were able to see out the game and earn three vital points as they reclaimed their spot atop the Premier League table from Manchester City.
A passionate Xhaka was interviewed post-match in front of the adoring travelling fans who belted out his name. But the midfielder couldn't hold back his passion as he swore live on TV.

He said: "You can see the atmosphere, it's f***ing unbelievable," pointing at the away end, before the reporter intervened and apologised.
The Swiss captain continued: "From the start, until the end, I think we deserved to win today. We were the much, much, much better team today.
“We are so happy that everything is going well at the moment. We are keeping everything the coaches are telling us & these are the results.
Do you think Granit Xhaka is the Premier League's most improved player this season? Let us know in the comments section.
“Listen, after the season, nobody asks you how you win in November or December or January. We are trying to get a lot of points, [as many] as possible & after, let’s see where we end.”
Xhaka put in another solid display in the middle of the park, continuing his stellar form this season. A brief altercation in the dying embers with Matteo Kovacic tested his mental fortitude, but the veteran passed with flying colours by keeping his cool where he otherwise may have failed in previous seasons.
Arsenal will next face Brighton in the EFL Cup third round before taking on Wolves in their final fixture prior to the World Cup. Xhaka will be hoping the Gunners can keep Man City at bay before he joins up with the Switzerland squad in Qatar.
