Why Mesut Ozil is not playing well at Arsenal – Arsene Wenger

In recent times, Arsenal’s defeats have been blamed on the most expensive player in the club Mesut Ozil and Wenger has revealed the effects of those criticism on the player.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is suffering from a lack of confidence after failing to score in eight straight games, Arsene Wenger has admitted.

The German star has cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks, struggling to make an impact for the Gunners who have slipped 10 points adrift of Chelsea.

Ozil, 28, has not scored for the north London side since December and Wenger admits he is concerned by his form.

‘I felt he was not completely confident technically [against Hull],’ said Wenger.

‘I completely agree, that’s a problem because you always think he can deliver something special.

‘It’s true that technically he did things that he is not used to doing. I don’t know why, it can happen.

‘I can’t think of a specific reason. I had a chat with him on Friday. He seemed all right.
