It’s Safe For Me To Have Luiz And Mustafi At The Defense – Emiliano Martinez.

The Gunners goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez revealed his peace of mind guarding the post comes with Shkodran Mustafi and David Luiz at the defense, despite frequent criticism of the pair.

Ever since Arsenal’s top choice Goalkeeper Bernd Leno picked an injury against Brighton Hove Albion, Argentine goalkeeper Martinez have been in goal for the Gunners.

On Saturday, a back three of Luiz, Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac restricted in-form Wolves to just a single shot on target at Molineux as Arsenal won 2-0.

“Now, we have structure, we have a gameplan, we have game management and the defence looks stronger and stronger,” Martinez told Sky Sports.

“Believe me, David and Mustafi are top players. David has been at the top for so many years and it’s the same with Mustafi.

“Sometimes when you make mistakes at big clubs you get punished. With Arsenal, people always seem to blame the defence for defeats. But I feel really safe behind them.

“They have experience and they are constantly talking through the whole game. When you play behind them, it’s not like what people say. It’s not, ‘Oh, they make mistakes, they don’t know how to play football’.

“I feel really safe, and now that we’ve kept three clean sheets on the bounce in the Premier League, people are starting to say that the defence is actually solid.”
