No Mustafi Apology Needed After Shocking Palace Display

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has revealed that there’s no apology needed from Gunners teammates Shkrodan Mustafi after his poor display against fellow London club Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Mustafi had a stinker as Arsenal were surprisingly beaten at home by the Eagles in their Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

Bernd Leno spoke to Goal reporters about his Arsenal teammate as he revealed that German international Mustafi doesn’t need to apologize for his mistakes against the Eagles on Sunday.

The German shot-stopper went on to say that the Arsenal dressing room was quiet after the stunning defeat to Crystal Palace before revealing that Gunners boss Unai Emery was quick to lift the players by shifting their focus to the next battle, the away league game at Wolves.

Shkrodan Mustafi and Bernd Leno are international teammates with the German national team but the two players had a little clash after the second goal scored by Wilfried Zaha.

Mesut Ozil had canceled out the first half Crystal Palace lead from Christian Benteke at that stage.

Mustafi was culpable in the second Palace goal scored by Zaha before James McArthur added a third goal for the visitors.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back for the Gunners but it was too little too late for the hosts who fell to a first defeat at the Emirates Stadium since August.
