Shkodran Mustafi takes to social media in the wake of Arsenal's dramatic 2-1 win over Burnley
Shkodran Mustafi has taken to social media to reveal his delight at helping Arsenal secure a thrilling 2-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Gunners took the lead through Mustafi’s header from a corner, before Andre Gray netted an equaliser for the visitors deep into stoppage time from the penalty spot after Francis Coquelin conceded the spot-kick.
But it was Alexis Sanchez who had the final say, when the Chilean stepped up to duly convert his penalty after Laurent Koscielny was fouled in the box, despite the defender appearing to be offside in the build-up.
Mustafi’s goal was his first for the club since his arrival at The Emirates from Valencia late in the summer transfer window.
And the German defender was clearly thrilled to play his part in helping the Gunners claim all three points on Sunday afternoon and move up to second place in the Premier League table.
Mustafi posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account after the game and wrote the caption: “🔙🔛🔝 WHAT A GAME!!! Extremely happy about the last minute win and my first goal for @Arsenal! ⚽🔥 #ARSBUR #COYG #sm20”
