Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi sent Arsenal fans into a frenzy on social media following his performance in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates on Saturday.

The 25-year-old scored as Arsenal secured an impressive 2-0 victory over their bitter rivals on Saturday launch-time.

The Germany international opened the scoring with a fantastic header in the first-half before Chile international Alexis Sanchez made it 2-0 for Arsenal before the break.

Mustafi also made a brilliant save from Spurs striker Harry Kane just after the interval and another from Son Heung-Min in stoppage time.

The Gunners showed a dominant performance and Tottenham failed to create too many clear cut chances throughout the 90 minutes.

Arsenal supporters were quick to take to social media to praise the defender for his overall performance against their bitter rivals.

Football Weeks has rounded up some of the best tweets:

Arsenal on Saturday now find them one point behind Tottenham in the Premier League table following a mixed start to the season.

Mustafi has endured a tough start to the early stages of the season after he suffered a hamstring injury, which has ruled him out of the club last four Premier League matches.

Arsenal will look to build on this result when they face FC Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night.
