Arsenal fans take to Twitter to praise Mustafi on Newcastle display

It may have only been Newcastle last night for the Gunners, who offered little going forward, but they still managed a clean sheet, and some of the home fans have even gone as far as to praise Shkodran Mustafi after the game. The German defender can usually be described as a bomb waiting to go off, but last night the World Cup winner looked solid.

When in possession and on the ball, the ex-Valencia man’s passing and decision making were still rough, but defensively he looked a lot better than usual. It wouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that the German suffers from confidence problems as a result of the bashing he usually gets from his own fans, but if he can string together some consistent performances like last night, he might win them over.

The real test will come on Sunday when an in-form Everton host the Gunners at Goodison Park. The free-flowing attacking football that Marco Silva is starting to string together through the likes of Richarlison, Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson could prove to be too much for Mustafi to handle, but after last night the Arsenal supporters will be believing that anything is possible.

The Gunners will hope that their German stopper can find some form for the final run in, but the danger is always there that he may slip up and cost them a win.
