Mustafi scores shocking own goal just six minutes into Liverpool game… and NO Arsenal fans are surprised

The Sun Sports 1 month ago

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.

Shkodran Mustafi apologised to the fans after the own goal

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.”
