Watch: Shkodran Mustafi relives special Arsenal moment on Instagram
The Arsenal defender delivers his verdict on his special moment at the Emirates Stadium last weekend
Shkodran Mustafi has relived the special moment when he opened his Arsenal account in last weekend’s thrilling 2-1 win against Burnley at The Emirates on Sunday.
The Germany international broke the deadlock in north London thanks to Mustafi’s close-range header from Mesut Ozil’s corner in the second half at Old Trafford.
However, Granit Xhaka’s sending off prompted a chaotic end to the match and Andre Grey threatened to ruin Mustafi’s special day after the Burnley striker equalised from the penalty spot.
But Arsenal’s blushes were spared when the home side were awarded an added-time penalty of their own which Alexis Sanchez dispatched without any problems to secure three points.
Mustafi posted the above video on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption: “🔙🔛🔝 Special moment in our last game, when I scored my first goal in the @premierleague! I hope more will follow… 😉👌🏽 #sm20 @arsenal”
Arsenal signed Mustafi in a £35m deal from La Liga outfit Valencia in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners are in second place in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
