Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Shkodran Mustafi’s display vs Newcastle

After the first-half of Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea last month, you would have been forgiven for wondering if Shkodran Mustafi was making one of his final appearances for the Gunners.

The German made a terrible error in that game. And the fans would certainly be entitled to point out that it was hardly an anomaly for the centre-back to land his side in trouble.

In fairness to Mustafi, he produced a superb second-half performance considering the size of the mistake. And he has seemingly continued to go from strength to strength in the weeks since.

Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions on Sunday. Mikel Arteta’s side thrashed Newcastle United 4-0 at the Emirates with a scintillating second-half display.

Whoscored.com shows that Mustafi completed 71 of the 79 passes he attempted. Meanwhile, no Arsenal player won more duels than the seven the 27-year-old managed.

And some will understandably be wary of getting carried away. He arguably still needs to prove that he can remain consistent for a long period.

But many felt that Mustafi was outstanding against Newcastle. And they have also lauded Arteta for the impact his arrival appears to have had on his game.

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