Arsenal fans furious with Shkodran Mustafi on Twitter as they fold early against Manchester United

In truth, it could have been anyone in the Arsenal defence, but fans selected Shkodran Mustafi in particular in the first half against Manchester United.

We fell 2-0 behind the Red Devils after 11 minutes, with Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard giving the visitors a commanding lead.

However, while there were bits of magic from the Red Devils in the build-up to those goals, Jose Mourinho's side certainly got a helping hand from the Gunners defence who were desperately poor in possession.

Never more so in the lead up to the second goal, the Germany international took too long on the ball being dispossessed, with Anthony Martial producing a brilliant assist to set Lingard through to finish.

Mustafi's night got even worse as he was forced to limp off immediately after the ball hit the back of the net, and it's fair to say that the Gunners fans weren't impressed.

He was accused by many fans for feigning injury having been tormented in the opening minutes of the game, but it's evidently not going to be the reasoning for Mustafi being replaced.

Nevertheless, Mustafi won't be happy with his own performance, and he'll certainly have to do much better when he returns having been in impressive form prior to Saturday night.

As whole, fans gave themselves plenty to do to launch a comeback, but he will be left to rue a very poor outing and some abuse to go with it.
