After being benched for several games in the Premier League this season, and staying fairly quiet on social media, Shkodran Mustafi took to Twitter to send out a message ahead of the trip to Sheffield United on Monday.

The German defender has not always been the most popular player in the Arsenal squad, due to his inconsistent displays when called upon.

So far this season, the arrival of David Luiz from Chelsea has seen Mustafi settle for a place on the bench on a regular basis for games in the Premier League.

Most players in the German defender’s position in the past would have complained about the lack of playing opportunities.

However, Mustafi has maintained his positive and cheerful attitude in the squad and ahead of the clash with Sheffield United, he took to social media to share a cheeky moment from training and send a message to the fit-again Alexandre Lacazette.
