Video: Just What is Shkodran Mustafi Doing For Christian Benteke Goal?

Just what is Shkodran Mustafi doing for Christian Benteke’s goal here?

The Arsenal defender was supposed to be marking the Crystal Palace striker early on in their Premier League game at the Emirates, but he somehow allowed the powerful frontman to coast away from him to head the Eagles into an early 1-0 lead.

It was a brilliant Luka Milivojevic delivery on a free-kick, but Mustafi’s marking is terrible to allow Benteke in for the free header.

Just what is he doing here?

That is terrible defending from Benteke.

With Manchester United losing 4-0 to Everton at Goodison Park earlier, Arsenal have the opportunity to move five points clear of them in their pursuit of the final Champions League spot.

But losing to Crystal Palace would let United off with what is a very poor result and it would also give Chelsea an opportunity to apply some pressure when they play Burnley at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
