Mustafi’s form is quietly pleasing Arsenal fans on Twitter

It’s a very rare thing to see Arsenal fans talking about Shkodran Mustafi without throwing some sort of abuse at the German defender. However, they’ve been praising him after his display against Cardiff on the weekend, where he looked solid at the back and opened the scoring for The Gunners.

It would e easy to look at the scoreline and question Arsenal after they beat Neil Warnock’s Cardiff 3-2 on Sunday. However, the way that the Welsh outfit set up on Sunday was always going to be an issue for Unai Emery’s Arsenal. The Bluebirds, if they stay up, will do it through their sheer physicality and it’s rare that the likes of Arsenal come up against a side like that in any competition.

Mustafi stood up to that tough test from Cardiff well and it’s hard to fault him for either of the goals his side conceded. If the German centre-back can keep doing what he’s quietly been doing this season then there’s no reason why The Emirates can’t be a place that teams fear going to this season. The club needs to instil fear into opposition again and if Mustafi can help make their defence almost impenetrable then there’s no reason why that can’t happen.

The Gunners are loving life at the moment after getting over a shaky start to the campaign and Mustafi has been crucial to that in defence.
