Mesut Ozil has been a subject of heavy and unfair criticism from the fans of Arsenal, especially after failing to raise the standard of his game in our previous matches.
Since moving from Real Madrid in 2o13, Mesut Ozil has been in his most prolific form, scoring goals more than creating goals. He was anonymous against Everton and the Citizens.
At fault for Ashley Williams’ winning goal last Tuesday by refusing to offer event the merest resistance, the Germany World Cup winner followed-up with a failure to create a solitary goalscoring opportunity against a makeshift City backline and was mocked for an apparent lack of effort.
Since the backlash of Sunday, Ozil has been quiet on social media.
The 28-year-old is clearly aware of the backlash his disappearing act has generated, however, as evidenced by his liking of a post on Instagram, ridiculing those who have criticised him of late and even dared to suggest he should be dropped.
