What’s the latest on Shkodran Mustafi?

The Germany international came off injured in our defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. This is what Unai Emery told the media afterwards about his fitness:

on Shkodran Mustafi…
I think he's okay. He's been having problems all this week and last week. Dinos Mavropanos is training with us also and is good to start his first 20 minutes today and help us.

on whether he will be out for long…
No. I think last week he is with some problems also in his head and today, when in the last 20 minutes he was also with some problems, I decided to give Mavropanos 20 minutes. I hope it is not a problem with Mustafi for this week and the next match.

on the issue being with his head…
Last week, he had a problem. During the week he was improving and he was okay to play today, but after the two actions in the second half, I decided to keep him and to give Mavropanos a chance to play.
