‘Worst Game As A Professsional Footballer’ Arsenal Fans Rip Into Midfielder After Terrible Performance vs Manchester United


Arsenal somehow managed to rescue a point at Old Trafford, Olivier Giroud heading in with just a couple of minutes of normal time to go. The Gunners were far from their best at Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho rekindled their old rivalry, but the spoils were shared in a game of few chances in Manchester.

Mourinho was left fuming as United’s penalty claims were correctly waved away in the first half by Andre Marriner, but the United manager saw his team take the lead midway through the second half, Juan Mata coming up with the goods once again.

United looked to sit back with just under ten minutes to go, and this horribly backfired as Arsene Wenger’s substitutes combined to fire Arsenal level. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain beat his man down the right and picked out Giroud in the box, who nodded the ball home at the back post.

However, one player to disappear in a big game yet again with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil. He has shown his quality throughout the season, but was little more than a passenger here for Arsene Wenger’s side.

The German creator didn’t have a single shot in the ninety minutes, and he didn’t create a single chance either. In addition to this, Ozil produced just two crosses and completed just three take-ons.

Fans were quick to criticise the German on social media, who has put in a string of poor performances in the big games. Here is how they reacted.

On his day, Ozil can be one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League. He showed his class against Ludogorets and some of the weaker oposition in the Premier League. However, Arsenal were missing that creative spark today at Old Trafford, and Ozil needs to step up in the future in the big games.
