'Shocking', 'Embarrassment' - Arsenal fans blame one player for loss v Man United

Arsenal fans have destroyed centre-back Shkodran Mustafi on social media after his first-half performance against Manchester United on Saturday evening.

The 25-year-old dithered on the ball and lost possession to Jesse Lingard which led to United’s second goal, as Arsenal conceded twice in the opening 11 minutes.

Arsenal supporters were furious with the German for making the mistake, with some suggesting he should be dropped from the starting line-up.

Other fans suggested that he was not really injured and wanted to leave the pitch because he was embarrassed.

Gunners fans took to Twitter to express their frustration with the German, who was then taken off in the 15th minute due to an injury.

Antonio Valencia put Manchester United ahead after seven minutes after Laurent Koscielny gave the ball away. Lingard doubled their lead after Mustafi’s mistake.

Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back for the Gunners four minutes after half-time with a composed finish. Lingard made it 3-1 to Jose Mourinho’s side in the 63rd minute, after a fine pass by Paul Pogba.

The defeat means Arsenal missed the chance to move up back into the Premier League’s top-four, after Liverpool moved above them with a win at Brighton earlier in the day.

Manchester United have closed the gap to leaders Manchester City to five points, with Pep Guardiola’s side in action tomorrow against struggling West Ham United.
