Arsenal fans on Twitter ready to get behind Mustafi this season

For most fans, pre-season is more about seeing new signings and youngsters being given minutes amongst the senior squad. However, this summer, Shkodran Mustafi’s performances have been drawing the eye. After a truly shocking campaign last season, it looks like Unai Emery could be set to help revive the German’s career at The Emirates.

Arsenal fans need more than two hands to count the number of errors their defender made last season. Under Arsene Wenger and with no real defensive midfielder in front of him, Mustafi’s confidence was shot to bits as he committed mistake after mistake and saw Arsenal concede a shocking 51 goals, more than Burnley and Newcastle and only three less than Brighton.

Fortunately for the German, Emery has come into the club and his defensive emphasis has seen the club improve at the back on the whole already, although the real test will be Manchester City a week on Sunday. For now, though, the days leading up to that game will be spent focussing on helping to build the partnership between Mustafi and new signing Sokratis Papasthatopopoulos as they look to improve on last season’s 6th placed finish.

The fans are keen to Mustafi show his form in the Premier League and will get behind him whenever they can.
