The Gunners have kept three clean sheets in a row and it appears Mikel Arteta has struck gold over a winning combination in defence with Shkodran Mustafi and David Luiz.
The Arsenal defender has been in fine form recently and Arsenal fans have called Shkodran Mustafi better than Virgil van Dijk after a recent upturn in form.
The German has become a key player under Mikel Arteta in defence, keeping three clean sheets in a row. It is a remarkable turnaround for the 27-year-old, who was told he could leave last summer.
After falling out of favour under Unai Emery, Mustafi was set to become a casualty but no club would fork out for him.
This has led to some Arsenal fans calling him better than Van Dijk.
The Liverpool star is regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the world but after a 1-0 win over Olympiakos, Mustafi showcased his skills.
See some of their acclaim below:
One fan said: “Please can we talk how good Mustafi has been lately? Three clean sheets in a row, two away. “He’s been immense. Arteta made him look like van Dijk lmao.”
And another said on Twitter: “Another solid Mustafi display. He’s playing with real confidence. Previously in the season, he kept dropping deeper.”
Mikel Arterta has transformed Mustafi from Phil Jones to Virgil Van Dijk. This man is solid,” another posted.
Well, we think he can be better, and we wish him the best this season. What do you think?
