Arsenal boss Arteta hails Mustafi 'courage' for playing fight-back

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was delighted with Shkodran Mustafi's performance for their 0-0 draw with Burnley.

His last error was a short back pass at Chelsea which saw the Gunners concede and go down to 10 men.

But Arteta has praised the way Mustafi has dealt with the mistake and wants him to continue playing with the right intent.

He said: "Yeah, I said to him that he could make a mistake but I like his reaction afterwards and the courage he had to play and make decisions.

"He's been training really well and I think you could see today how good he was."
