‘He could be our new captain’ – Fans are really praising this Arsenal star after Spurs game
Several Arsenal fans have shown support for one of the defenders who played brilliantly in the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Arsene Wenger’s men did well to bounce back from the 3-1 defeat away to Manchester City two weeks ago by beating north London rivals Tottenham at home.
Back in the starting line-up for the clash against Mauricio Pochettino’s side was Shkodran Mustafi who had been sidelined for a couple of weeks due to injury.
The 25-year-old certainly made a memorable return to action by scoring a vital opening goal and defending manfully to help Arsenal secure a much-needed 2-0 victory over their fierce rivals.
And that has seen Mustafi receive all sorts of praises from the fans on social media…
Mustafi has been absolutely exceptional. Best I've seen him play for The Arsenal.

Mustafi looked really dedicated against Spurs. He could be our new captain after Mertesacker retires.

Mustafi as the middle CB in the back three makes a huge difference. He is outstanding there. Suits the team better to have him there.

2-0. Our best performance since the cup final. Terrific. Mustafi absolutely outstanding, fair play to him.

Are people convinced by Mustafi now? Still think we need to sign a major CB in the summer. If Mustafi can maintain a similar level to yesterday so be it, just sell Chambers and loan Holding.
