Because of Bayern Munich's great recent record in the Champions League (and of course Arsenal's dire performances at this level!) everyone is assuming that we are far outsiders to progress to the next round. But according to our other big German star, Shkodran Mustafi, there is no reason why we should be overawed at facing [.
Despite being the coolest man on the planet and almost giving the Arsenal manager a heart attack with the Padenka penalty to win our EPL game against Burnley in the 98th minute, Alexis Sanchez was just pipped to my Man of the Match award by Shkodran Mustafi who scored the crucial opener and defended with [.
London (AFP) Arsene Wenger apologised after he was sent off and then shoved the fourth official during Arsenal's dramatic 2-1 win over Burnley but could still face a significant ban.
Having taken the lead through Shkodran Mustafi's first goal for the club on Sunday, Arsenal saw Granit Xhaka dismissed for a needless foul and then nearly imploded as Andre Gray struck from the spot following Francis Coquelin's foul on Ashley Barnes.
On paper Arsenal have a very easy task to beat Burnley at the Emirates tomorrow, considering that our opponents simply cannot get a result away from Turf Moor this season, but we have another good reason to expect a win in the form of Shkodran Mustafi. Although I believe that Xhaka, Perez and Holding were [.
My guess is that if you were to ask 100 Gooners whether Xhaka would start against PSG, well over 90 would have said "Yes". So, why didn't Mr Wenger agree?The simple answer is that I have no idea! However, as we need a post I will make some suggestions.
London (AFP) Arsene Wenger has credited Shkodran Mustafi with giving Arsenal the defensive steel that has helped the Gunners share the lead at the head of the Premier League table going into Saturday's match with struggling Sunderland.
Wenger's side will head to the Stadium of Light level on points with Manchester City and Liverpool and unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions since the opening day of the season.
Shkodran Mustafi was a practically unknown defender for Sampdoria when he was inexpicably picked by Joachim Low to play his first game for the German senior national side in May 2014, so it was even more shocking when he was picked for the provisional World Cup squad just a couple of months later. Mustafi didn't [.
With a £35million move to Arsenal very much in the offing, these are feverishly exciting times for Shkodran Mustafi.
While the granite-hewncentre-half is still technically a Valencia player, it's being reported that the 24-year-old passed a medical last week and is now merely sat waiting for the Gunners to make his transfer official.
Arsene Wenger has addressed the need to sign a central defender following a long-term injury to German defender Per Mertesacker. Despite bringing in Rob Holding from Bolton, the Gunners are looking to sign a top quality defender ahead of the 2016-17 season.
According to reports from Sky Sports, Arsenal are in talks to sign German defender Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia but no offer has been made to the La Liga club.
by James Hall The 2015/16 season can only be described as a disastrous season for Chelsea. The former Premier League champions oversaw the worst title defence in over 25 years, the departure of Jose...

As France and Germany prepare to face off at the Maracanã, we look at how the two teams could line up.
For the round of 16 match, centre-half Mats Hummels was sidelined with the flu. Now apparently back to full fitness, he could return to play next to Per Mertesacker in the centre, with Jérôme Boateng returning to right-back.
To be quite honest I had absolutely no idea which country PFC Ludogorets Razgrad came from until I started writing this. Bulgaria is the answer and I sincerely hope my appalling ignorance and downright lack of awareness is not matched by the manager and team of Arsenal Football Club.
Looking at Ludogorets' record in the Champions League, their biggest home win was 1-0 v Basel in 2014 and their biggest away defeats were both 4-0 to Basel (again) and Real Madrid (both in 2014).
