It’s arguably no doubt Arsenal have found their best centre-half partnership in Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny, says Jamie Redknapp.
The Gunners had a very disappointing season opener game due to defensive errors losing t0 Liverpool with new boy, Rob Holding pairing along with Calum Chambers at the back.
With the introduction of Mustafi and Koscielny, the Gunners were able to demolish Jose Mourinho side 3-0 last weekend and Redknapp believes Arsene Wenger has gotten the best buy of the summer transfer window.
He wrote in the Daily Mail: “Arsenal’s centre-backs have been too easily bullied in recent years by Didier Drogba and Diego Costa. On Saturday afternoon, Shkodran Mustafi wasn’t having any of it.
“He showed so much quality alongside Laurent Koscielny and for the first time in a long time it looks like Arsenal have found a great centre-back partnership.
“The pair are both quick and good in the air. They are strong in both boxes and will threaten from set pieces, too.”
