SHKODRAN MUSTAFI scored a shocking own goal to give Liverpool an early lead – but Arsenal fans were far from surprised.
The German defender poked the ball into his own net to pile the pressure on Unai Emery’s men after just six minutes.
Ex-Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain charged down the right flank before he delivered a ball into the box.
Mustafi looked set to clear the danger as Anfield youngster Rhian Brewster closed him down.
But the defender – who has insisted he is not the second worst defender in the world – had other ideas.
As he attempted to kick the ball with his right boot, it rebounded off his left knee and flew past Emiliano Martinez.
The under-fire star held his hand up to apologise after the monumental error – but fans did not hold back on social media.
One Twitter user said: “Can always rely on Mustafi to have a shocker.”
While another added: “A Mustafi own goal… can’t say I’m shocked.”
Gary Lineker tweeted: “Innovative finish gives @LFC the lead. You can always rely on Mustafi.”
