Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Shkodran Mustafi’s display

If there was a moment that perhaps best summed up Shkodran Mustafi’s Arsenal career, it was probably the mistake that led to the opening goal in the Gunners’ draw with Chelsea on Tuesday night.

In a pulsating game at Stamford Bridge, Mikel Arteta’s men twice came from behind to earn a point. Gabriel Martinelli and Hector Bellerin bagged the goals for the visitors.

Arsenal’s fightbacks were all the more impressive given that they played the majority of the game with 10 men.

David Luiz gave away a penalty and was subsequently sent off for bringing down Tammy Abraham inside the box. The Brazilian denied the Chelsea man the fairly simple task of scoring after an error from Mustafi.

The German attempted to play the ball back to Bernd Leno. However, the centre-back underhit his pass and that allowed Abraham to go through and get past Leno.

It must be noted that Mustafi actually got the assist for Arsenal’s first equaliser. And it looked as though he was going to prove a point with an improved second-half performance.

However, some felt that Mustafi also needed to take some of the blame for the Blues’ second goal. He did not appear to react as Cesar Azpilicueta got on the end of a cross to score from close range.

And while some have praised some of Mustafi’s performance, plenty have insisted that he showed why he cannot be relied upon.

Some have claimed that he should not play for the club again. There were positive signs, but the mistakes cannot be ignored.

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