While one German shone in this game, another did not. This is a day Shkodran Mustafi will want to forget.

His team were comfortable in this game before he gave away the penalty that Kane converted. It was a needless, thoughtless, moment from the central defender. Unfortunately, it’s not the first time he’s done it.

After arriving at the Emirates with a glowing report from his time in La Liga, he has failed to adapt to the Premier League.

That does not look like improving in future. A new central defender has to be on Arsenal’s wishlist in the summer. Mustafi is not good enough moving forward.
