It was another clean sheet for Arsenal, who also denied both Burnley and Newcastle in their previous two games. And Mustafi certainly played his part.

The German did have one or two nervy moments. But generally, it was a performance that the centre-back can be very pleased with. The fans certainly appear delighted.

Whoscored.com shows that Mustafi found a teammate with 67 of his 76 passes, including one key pass in the build-up to Arsenal’s goal.

Here is what some of the fans made of Mustafi’s performance in Greece…
