Much of the Arsenal faithful took to social media to bash several players who featured in the humiliating 5-1 defeat away to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.
Arsenal opened this season with two defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea but what followed those results was an impressive run of 22 games without defeat in all competitions which lasted until earlier this month at Southampton.
The Gunners’ form in recent weeks has not been convincing by any means and that is partly due to the number of injuries which have hit the squad at a vital stage of the campaign.
One of the players who were recently sidelined by an injury is Shkodran Mustafi, a man who has racked up a lot of minutes of playing time so far this season.
The former Valencia star was back in the starting eleven for Arsenal against Liverpool on Saturday but his performance did not impress most of the fans as the Gunners were thrashed 5-1 by Klopp’s side.
Shkodran Mustafi is just a disgrace. Whoever agreed to pay £35 million for him should be blacklisted from working in the football business.

Mustafi & Lichsteiner the best Liverpool players so far. Unplayable on their day

Does anyone remember last week where for some reason people thought it was Koscielny's fault we looked like clowns and that Mustafi would solve the problem?
