Since Shkodran Mustafi arrived and paired up with Laurent Koscielny, the duo have not conceded a goal from open play

In the league, Mustafi has played four games and won all four, making him something of a lucky talisman.

Heading off on international duty, the defender seemed more than a little pleased with how it was all going, and who could blame him?

The games Musti has started in the Premier League are as follows:

  • Arsenal 2 Southampton 1
  • Hull 1 Arsenal 4
  • Arsenal 3 Chelsea 0
  • Burnley 0 Arsenal 1

It would seem like we’ve finally found our first-choice paring.

And boy! What a pairing they are!
