Arsenal: Shkodran Mustafi still on better track than last year

Shkodran Mustafi put in his first real stinker of the season for Arsenal, but as it’s five matches in, it’s still safe to say he is doing just fine.

Arsenal: Shkodran Mustafi improving with less restrictions

Arsenal’s defense is left high and dry way too often, but Shkodran Mustafi is still managing to get better in this new set-up. Odd, but nice. Arsenal‘s defensive problems are becoming clearer.
