Arsenal fans have been lauding Shkodran Mustafi after the German’s performance during the win over Olympiacos.

The centre-half was in brilliant form for the Gunners as he made the most tackles (3), the joint-second most interceptions (2) and the second-most clearances (3) for Mikel Arteta’s side. He proved to be monstrous in the air as he won a staggering six aerial duels, three more than any teammate (via WhoScored).

One fan believes Arteta has made Mustafi perform like Virgil van Dijk with the Arsenal man averaging more clearances per Premier League game than the Liverpool ace.

Please can we talk how good Mustafi has been lately? Three clean sheets in a row, two away. He’s been immense. Arteta made him look like van Dijk lmao

His recent form proves the club were right to hold on to the defender after he was linked with a move away from the club during the January transfer window. Turkish side Galatasaray were said to have been offered the £13.5m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, 27-year-old through an intermediary (via Turkish Football). Fans were full of love for the defender as they praised him. Here is a selection of tweets:

You’ve been class of lately, respect my guy

Well done mate. Another great performance. Keep it up!

When are we going to admit Mustafi is one of the best defenders in EPL now and currently better than Van Dijk?

— MAYOR OF MUSHIN? (@kingingAbbey) February 20, 2020

Unpopular opinion: Mustafi is our most improved player under Arteta.
