‘Absolute rubbish, how’s he starting games?’ – Fans attack Arsenal star, call for him to be dropped after performance vs Palace
Several Gooners have voiced their opinion about the performance of Shkodran Mustafi at Selhurst Park on Monday.
The 24-year-old became the most expensive defender in the club’s history last summer as he left Valencia for the Emirates stadium.
However, Mustafi’s encouraging shows from the beginning of the season have completely disappeared in recent months with Arsenal conceding goals heavily in away games.
That has prompted criticism from fans about the Germany international who began his Arsenal career with an impressive unbeaten run.
Following his display alongside Gabriel in the 3-0 loss against Crystal Palace, here were the thoughts of some fans…
Actually thought Mustafi was the answer to our defensive problem but since he's been back from injury he's been shocking

Mustafi defends like Arsenal got him on a free. Absolute rubbish

How on earth has Mertesecker not been brought back into the team yet? How is Mustafi still starting games?

Also, Mustafi is in a total rut. He's a good player, but his decision making and constant insistence on diving in is amateurish.
