Mustafi - My first experience of the derby

The importance of the north London derby hit home for Shkodran Mustafi when he had his first taste of the fixture last season.

Although the game ended in a 1-1 draw, the Germany international soaked up the “special” atmosphere that surrounds the game.

“When you sign for Arsenal everyone tells you it’s a big derby,” Mustafi told Arsenal Player. “It’s an important game and when you play it you feel it a little bit as well, because you feel that for both teams it is something special.

“We went in front in that game, and then we conceded the equaliser. It was a big game, but it was at the end a little bit disappointing.

“It was intense and I think for the fans and the people watching it was a nice game. Obviously it’s better for the Arsenal fans when you win, but we have to give credit to them as well because they’re a good team too.”
