Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Shkodran Mustafi’s display

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Shkodran Mustafi’s performance as the Gunners suffered a dramatic defeat at home to Chelsea on Sunday.

Arsenal looked to be on course for their first win under Mikel Arteta. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the home side ahead during the first-half with a diving header.

But the side’s defensive frailties emerged when the game looked to be there for the taking. Chelsea scored twice in the final 10 minutes to snatch the three points.

It looked set to be a good afternoon for Mustafi. The German came on midway through the first-half due to an injury to Calum Chambers.

However, his performance has been slammed by the supporters on social media. He came in for particular criticism following Chelsea’s second goal.

The centre-back, along with David Luiz, seemed more than happy to let Tammy Abraham collect the ball uncontested inside his own half. The pair then continued to allow the striker to run at them without applying much pressure.

And Mustafi was arguably turned much too easily as Abraham looked to get a shot away inside the six-yard box for what proved to be the winner.

Mustafi has come in for a lot of criticism during his time at the Emirates. So it is no surprise that many Arsenal fans have insisted that he needs to be offloaded in January.

It has been suggested by many that he is too much of a liability. And they are hoping that Arteta has seen enough after Sunday’s defeat.

Here is what some of the fans made of Mustafi’s display…
