The German centre-back produced a shocking defensive error as the Gunners lost 3-2 to the Eagles
Shkodran Mustafi produced yet another defensive horror show at the Emirates as Arsenal lost 3-2 to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners’ top-four hopes were dealt a serious blow after goals from Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur sealed a memorable win for the Eagles.
Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted for the hosts – but the game hinged on a moment of madness from Mustafi.
With the match hanging in the balance at 1-1, the defender inexplicably failed to clear a seemingly-harmless ball over the top, allowing Zaha to pounce and score.
Things then turned from bad to worse as the German was booked for diving… in his own half.
It’s not the first time Mustafi has cost Arsenal points and some fans have run out of patience.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the mistake:
