A section Arsenal fans are being rather forgiving of centre-half Shkodran Mustafi despite his role in Crystal Palace’s opener this afternoon.
Arsenal find themselves 1-0 down at half time at Selhurst Park, with the German diving in recklessly to concede a penalty before half time.
Mustafi is always going to be a liability, but if Leno wasn’t so afraid of catching balls into the box, that penalty wouldn’t have happened.

The Mustafi tackle aside, that was a horrible attempt to punch the ball out by Leno. Need to step up big time this half. Second Half FC#CRYARS

Why is Leno trying to punch it there anyway, you are 26 years old conduct yourself like a fully grown adult

Poor from Leno to not punch that away. Had only one opponent in front of him. Needs to be stronger there

Leno weak from the corner didn’t help

The goal is due to a Leno mistake. Flapping at crosses was bound to cost us eventually.
