‘His performance tonight was wonderful’ – Gary Neville is praising this Arsenal star after Chelsea game
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville was full of praise for one of the Arsenal players after the dramatic 2-2 draw against Chelsea at the Emirates stadium.
Arsene Wenger’s men went into Wednesday night’s clash with the Blues having failed to win their last outing on Sunday against West Brom.
At the Hawthorns, the Gunners appeared to be heading for a victory, only for a controversial decision from Mike Dean to decide the game as West Brom equalized through a hardly deserved penalty kick.
The controversy continued on Wednesday as Eden Hazard was awarded a penalty after Hector Bellerin was adjudged to have fouled him – a huge turning point in the game as Arsenal drew 2-2 with Chelsea.
However, another shocking call from the match official did not overshadow the performance of Mesut Ozil in the eyes of Gary Neville.
According to the Sky Sports pundit, the Germany international was at his best against Antonio Conte’s side.
I enjoyed the game tonight. Some excellent attacking play on show from Arsenal . I’ve been critical of Ozil in the past but his performance tonight was wonderful.
