When Shkodran Mustafi made a switch from Valencia to Arsenal last summer, many were skeptical about his abilities, considering how poorly our defence line has fared in recent times.

The 24-year-old however adapted well into the harsh atmosphere in the Premier League, something that calls for massive applause.

In all 20 games the German international has featured in for Arsenal, there has been no single loss recorded and when asked about his teammate, Bellerin said it is unsurprising given the amount of class he has brought into the squad.

“He has been a great addition to the team,” Bellerín stated. “He has adapted really well to the way we play. "

"He likes to come out and look for people up front, doesn’t kick long balls, he looks to play the ball on the floor and that’s really important to the way we play.”

Mustafi's pass completion rate of 83%, 19 tackles and 43 interceptions since his arrival in the Premier League has gone a long way in strengthening the backline. Bellerin isn't ignorant of this fact judging from his statements.

“Defensively he has grown since the first day,” Bellerin continued. “He is really confident around the other players, he will tell you what to do, he is a World Cup winner as well and a leader. The stats show he is a very positive defender and he is helping us get clean sheets.”

“I feel very confident when I play with him because I know someone has got my back as well – not just the goalkeeper, you also know Shkodran will be there. I really like playing with him.”
