Press conference

What's the latest on Shkodran Mustafi?

It was not all good news on Monday night as, despite progressing to the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup, victory came at a price.

Shkodran Mustafi was stretchered off midway through the second half, so what's the latest on the centre back?

This is what Mikel Arteta told the media afterwards:

on the injury to Mustafi...

They're going to assess him between today and tomorrow but when a player has to come off, normally with a central defender - hopefully I am wrong but - normally it's not good news.

on whether it makes a move for Pablo Mari more necessary...

No. We had a very clear intention of what we wanted to do in the market with the resources we have and if we can do it, fine. But his fitness [Mustafi's fitness] won't change anything.
