Arsenal fans slate Shkodran Mustafi for his choice of - ahem - emojis on Twitter.

The Germany World Cup winner was culpable for conceding the opening goal in the 3-0 League Cup final defeat by Manchester City a fortnight ago in what was the latest in a long line of mistake this season.

And it seems like the 25-year-old's stock has dropped even lower after a message on Twitter.

Arsenal brought a four-match losing streak to an end on Thursday by securing a very impressive 2-0 win away to AC Milan in the last 16 of the Europa League, putting one foot in the quarter-finals.
