The German World Cup winner has endured a pretty miserable season by anybody’s standards, with his glaring error in the League Cup final against Manchester City earlier this year a definite low point.
And things don’t seem to be getting any better for the former Valencia centre-back.
Gol do Newcastle 1×1 arsenal

Today, in the Premier League clash at St. James’s Park, Arsenal looked like they could be on their way to an impressive away win when Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring early in the match.
However, on 28 minutes, Mustafi was caught resting on his laurels and could do absolutely nothing to prevent Ayoze Pérez from stealing in and snaffling an equaliser.
It was a good finish, but Gooners everywhere knew exactly who they considered to be at fault for the strike:
Decent finish but I’m getting tired of seeing Mustafi and Cech flopping at the near post.

Mustafi is so frustrating. He needs to wake up or spend some time on the bench. Schoolboy.

Gabriel was better than Mustafi.

I haven’t seen an Arsenal central defender fill me with as much confidence as Mustafi… since Igors Stepanovs. #NUFCvAFC

Mustafi has the pace and reactions of Mertesacker.

Mustafi is a waste of space.

Only 11 days until Mustafi meets Griezmann & Costa. Can’t wait.

Lovely goal, Toon. Yet again Mustafi sleeping at his near post though. Don't see it with him at all.

Mustafi is just pathetic

Mustafi with the reaction time of a sloth

Is Mustafi set to be sold in the summer?
