Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player, Mustafi said: “I don’t want to say too much because it will get in his head and he’s going to think he’s the best again!

“No, we know his qualities. He is incredible. He is calm in front of goal, I think I would have just taken the first touch and shot from 20 yards away!

“But he stays cool, he has the calmness and finishes off brilliantly.”
