Shkodran Mustafi produced yet another defensive horror show at the Emirates as Arsenal lost 3-2 to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners’ top-four hopes were dealt a serious blow after goals from Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur sealed a memorable win for the Eagles.
Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted for the hosts – but the game hinged on a moment of madness from Mustafi.
With the match hanging in the balance at 1-1, the defender inexplicably failed to clear a seemingly-harmless ball over the top, allowing Zaha to pounce and score.
Things then turned from bad to worse as the German was booked for diving… in his own half.
