Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has admitted he is lucky to have had his goal upheld by the referee.

Mustafi scored the Gunners opener of the north London derby on Saturday and the defender revealed the instruction he gave Ozil before heading home for Arsenal.

Mustafi told Sky Sports: “Since I joined, we have had a few good performances but the only important thing is too keep it up. We did well in the derby, we showed character, were there in the important moments and if you do all that, you win games.

“As I was going up for the header, I told Mesut Ozil to go to the ball and swing it in. If you have players who can put crosses in like that, you have belief to get your head on the ball.

“I was happy the referee did not blow the whistle for offside. I am lucky to get away with it. That is football, you get things for and against you, at the end of the season the decisions end up as a draw.”
