Arsenal: Fans react as Skhodran Mustafi is Premier League’s highest rated defender in 2020 - Arsenal

Many Arsenal fans have reacted to Skhodran Mustafi being named the highest-rated Premier League defender in 2020 (minimum five appearances) according to Whoscored, trolling Virgil Van Dijk in the process.

The German international has an average rating of 7.5 in the Premier League since the turn of the year, bettering Van Dijk who has averaged a 7.48 score and all other defenders. This is of course surprising considering the constant criticism he has endured at the club.

Either side of the two centre backs in the defence are Ricardo Pereira (7.38) and Cesar Azpilicueta (7.34). The highest-rated player so far is Bruno Fernandes with an average score of 7.82.
