Shkodran Mustafi has apologized to David Luiz after his error contributed to the Brazilian’s sending off against Chelsea .
Luiz, returning to Stamford Bridge for the first time since his summer move across north London, was given his marching orders in the (th minute by referee Stuart Attwell after he hauled down Tammy Abraham .
Mustafi had sold both Luiz and goalkeeper Bernd Leno short with a woefully under-hit backpass, causing the former Chelsea center-half to panic and commit a professional foul.
To his credit, Mustafi regained his composure after Jorginho put the home side ahead from the penalty spot and played his part in a spirited rearguard action which eventually yielded a point following a 2-2 draw.
The much maligned Germany international took to social media afterwards to praise the resilience Mikel Arteta’s side demonstrated in difficult circumstances, and also said sorry to Luiz who will now miss next Monday’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Bournemouth through suspension.
