Mesut Ozil has had an inconsistent season so far. After being in the starting XI in the initial few months of the season, Ozil lost his place in the team.
His absence in the game led to speculations surrounding his future at the club, with various outlets suggesting that he might leave Arsenal in the summer.
However, it was reported in the winter transfer window that Ozil intends to fight for a place in the team. The former German international started the game against Manchester United earlier this month and played a key role in the side’s 2-0 victory, which took Arsenal to the fourth place in the Premier League.
How Twitter reacted..

Ozil was probably in serious pain considering that his injury almost caused him to miss the world cup, yet you still said he was faking it. What’s to say that you’re not faking your disability to get more attention for your YouTube channel?

Szczesny on Ozil: “7 times he’s brilliant, 2 times he’s horrible. He can’t stabilise his form in the Premier League & I really cant tell why. He has unbelievable vision. You watch a match on TV & you’re like, ‘how has he seen that? I haven’t & I’ve got the whole screen on TV'” pic.twitter.com/JRoNdkFrCH
