Shkodran Mustafi should be fit to return to the Arsenal line-up for the visit of Newcastle on Saturday as part of Week 18 in the Premier League.
Mustafi is hardly the perfect center back but his absence has been felt at Arsenal. The match against Southampton could reasonably have expected to unfold differently if it had been Mustafi instead of Per Mertesacker trying to track Charlie Austin for the Saints' early goal. In general, Mertesacker's lack of mobility seems to have finally overcome his height and positional sense making him better suited for early round cup matches and, ultimately, the coaching role at the academy he is set to take next season. Look for Arsenal to tighten things up at the back if Mustafi does, indeed, return for Saturday as expected. Dec 15 - 1:41 PM
