Arsenal are still searching for their first League Cup triumph under Arsene Wenger following a 3-0 defeat to Man City on Sunday.
The Gunners seemingly arrived at Wembley without a game plan and their feeble attempt to stop Pep Guardiola’s side was routinely navigated by the league leaders.
From the moment City made the breakthrough, the match was academic – not least due to the manner in which Sergio Aguero was able to race through one-on-one with David Ospina. The Argentinian nudged Mustafi in the build-up to the goal and the German’s ludicrous appeals for a free-kick were in vain.
Arsene Wenger has dropped the German in the past and Mustafi could be benched for the Gunners visit of Man City in the Premier League on March 1.
Arsenal fans and football people have blasted the German for his defensive error on Twitter..
Take a look at what they had to say…
Absolutely fair play to Mustafi, managing to last the full 90 minutes after this horror challenge from Aguero pic.twitter.com/5QHYsQTmMf

Neville calls Mustafi’s defending “pathetic”. It was far far worse than that.

Mustafi with the worst defending I’ve seen. Gary Neville calls it under 12 defending. Shocking. £35m centre-half. Embarrassing. 1-0.

That’s truly horrendous from Mustafi

Mustafi is the biggest fraud. Guy has the mind of a 5 year old. The defending is a joke at this entire football club anyway.
