Several Arsenal fans took to social media to share their frustration about the performance of one of the defenders who played in the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace on Sunday as Arsenal lost more ground in the race for the top four places.
Manchester United and Tottenham both suffered defeats away from home to hand Arsenal a big opportunity to move further up in the Premier League table on Sunday.
But that chance was certainly not taken by the Gunners who succumbed to a very frustrating loss at home to Crystal Palace, the same team who held Arsenal to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture.
Featuring in that game was Shkodran Mustafi, a player who has often been criticized by most fans, even though he has been handed a lot of playing time this season.
The German defender was very much at fault for at least one of the goals which Palace scored and that has seen several fans bash him after the game….
If Shkodran Mustafi is wearing an Arsenal shirt next season someone has to lose their job

Mustafi has to be sold this summer. He is broken and in need of immediate repair somewhere else #ARSCRY

We refused to pay the asking price for Gary Cahill and felt Virgil Van Dijk was too nonchalant. But yet Mustafi was good at £35m and Senderos, Squillaci, Cygan, Silvestre & Djourou all could cut the mustard. Hindsight is a great thing but also a decent scouting system works

I swear that this season has just been Shkodran Mustafi, Marcos Alonso, Ashley Young, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Phil Jones & Kieran Trippier trying to see who can wind up their fans the most throughout the year whilst City & Liverpool have focused on the title.

Mustafi is a fucking clown of a defender. If you didn't think that before today, you surely do now
