Shkodran Mustafi (20)


#320

What a baller, in a few years this will be HIS defence and wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes either captain or vice captain either as he’s a proper leader.

Great to see us have two mobile CB’s that know what the hell they’re doing, the understanding between him and Kos is growing with each passing game. And I can confidently say at present we have likely have the best CB pairing in the league, Chavs eat your heart out.

Dat German engineering doe.


#321

don’t forget to thank Marco Reus too for getting injured.


#322

What!? Otherwise would we have bought him? :wenger:


#323

We wouldn’t have that “World Champion winning mentality”.

Mustafi was selected in Germany’s 30-man provisional squad before the 2014 FIFA World Cup by Löw. After initially not making the squad for the finals, he was subsequently nominated as the replacement for the injured Marco Reus.

Ahahah! :wenger:


#325

Podolski is that you?


#326

FTFY

FOUR CLEANSHEETS IN A ROW

We have something special going on here my friends.


#329

He’s awesome and likes fighting. I like him.


#330

Wonderful performance. Beast.


#331

Leader. Quality. German

Captain in waiting and worth every penny.


#332

Such a fighter! He really has the balls.

:laughing: ref look so uncomfortable there.


#334

Dunno why but that reminds me of the LVG incident jumping to the floor…it brought me to laugh!


#335

I absolutely LOVED that moment!

Epic man this Mustafi. Offering the ref sexy times for a free kick, this man already doing everything for the Arsenal to win the game!


#336

Us having a top quality centre back pairing feels very strange.


#337

Loved him bombing forward earlier in the game. Still anxious about how these two will perform together in the 6 pointers in the league.

Saying that it’s genuinely looking like the days of us conceding cricket scores to our rivals may be over.


#338

I can’t wait to see how this guy performs against Spurs and Man Utd in November. He could play a huge role in whether we get a good result or not against them. The more he plays, the more he’s settling in and forming a strong partnership with Kos. He’s seamlessly taken over Per’s spot by accident really, but we count ourselves so lucky to find someone like him.


#339

Exceptional beard. Exceptional defender.

Both Arsene and Theo talked of him as a leader in the squad, very vocal with everyone, committed. We look so, so good at the back now which coincides with how well we’ve been attacking recently too. Four clean sheets between Kostafi in four games they’ve featured together in.

As much as I like seeing a Xhaka 35 yarder, an Özil & Alexis ‘no-look pass’, Nigerian Hleb one touch passing with ease, Walcott banging in goals like it’s contract renewal time. Seeing Both Koscielny and Mustafi working in tandem together is a thing of beauty for any Arsenal fan.
