Latest Sports News: Shkodran Mustafi speaks on his offside goal against Chelsea
Premier League Champions Chelsea who were favorites to beat Arsenal on super Sunday football saw the other side of Arsenal.
Arsene wenger side show a real bit of commitment and hunger to punish the blue side.
Late in the contest at Stamford Bridge Mustafi rose to meet a free-kick and headed the ball past Thibaut Courtois.
Unfortunately for the defender his goal was ruled out for offside after his celebrations and he has taken out time to speak on the goal.
‘I saw someone behind me, so I thought I wasn’t offside,’ he said. ‘I knew I started a bit early, but I know as a defender it’s hard to stay in one line, so you get some going early, some a bit later. I thought if I start a split-second early, I might get this advantage.
‘I got it but unfortunately the man behind me was Sead and no one from the Chelsea team. I was really unhappy with that but it was offside.’
‘We are a team that are willing to learn. I think that we have to try and build from something and I think we can build form this performance today because we were really well organised when we didn’t have the ball.
‘When we had the ball, we played some brilliant one-touch football. I think we can build from this. We played today against the champions of last season and if you play like this, I think you’ll get a lot of points. We can build from that.’
