Mesut Ozil Gets Slated After Another Vanishing Act vs Manchester City

Arsenal

Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling completed a resilient Manchester City comeback against an Arsenal team who eradicated a hard earned first half lead.

The loss to Pep Guardiola’s men means that Arsene Wenger’s men remain nine points behind leaders Chelsea going into the Christmas break.

And being truthful, that gap should really have been only three points at the end of play today.

Tuesday’s game with Everton presented Arsenal with an excellent opportunity to take three points and enter today’s match with confidence.

Instead, sloppiness on the ball and a general lack of concentration allowed Ashley Williams to win the game for the Toffees, and it is clear Arsenal have not learned their lesson following today’s loss.

Despite the Citizens missing key men like Sergio Agüero and Fernandinho, they were more than able to capitalise on Arsenal’s inability to be ruthless and consistent throughout a ninety minute period.

One player in particular who has been blamed has been fan favourite Mesut Ozil, who looked like a shadow of his former self in a simply pathetic performance that angered many of the Arsenal faithful.

To begin with, his statistics from the 2-1 defeat would make any adoring fan of the German look away in shame.

And his work-rate on the pitch was shameful for one of the world’s finest players.

As expected, fans across social media ripped into the 28-year-old, and we cannot say we blame them.

We’ve heard this somewhere before about Ozil..

Well there’s always that, Piers..
