Some Arsenal fans took to social media to lash out at one of the players who featured in the clash with Wolves at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.
The Gunners went into the clash with the newly-promoted side on the back of consecutive league draws against Crystal Palace and Liverpool, which came after eleven straight victories across all competitions.
Arsenal were handed the major blow of an injury to Danny Welbeck on Thursday night as the team went on to draw 0-0 against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.
And on Sunday, there was more frustration for Unai Emery as Wolves stole an early lead. Indeed, had it not been for a fortuitous late goal from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Gunners would have succumbed to their first defeat since August.
Featuring in Sunday’s draw was Mesut Ozil, who was back in the starting eleven after being left out of the team for the clash against Sporting Lisbon a few days earlier.
The German midfielder has often been criticized for not showing enough consistency to warrant the high wages he is pocketing at the club.
And after the game, most fans expressed their thoughts on Ozil’s performance…
Ozil should be ripping it up in games like today’s. Disappointing and it’s far too often.

Ozil is the weak link the squad. So many times Emery had to sub him. Until we can find a replacement for him, the it’s more of the same tbh.

I think we could see Ozil dropped soon and going with a 442 formation with Iwobi/Mkhi on the wings. Something like this:
Iwobi Xhaka Torreira Mkhi

Arsenal fans were telling us how world class Ozil was against Leicester. He’s been missing since. They wonder why no one gives him recognition. He’s not world class. He has world class ability, but that doesn’t make a world class footballer if he doesn’t consistently show it.

Sounds as if Ozil was ineffectual again today.
Seems its not just the big clubs he disappears against !!
