Arsenal Fans Will Love What This Legend Said About Ozil

German playmaker Mesut Ozil captained Arsenal against Burnley and led them to a comfortable 3-1 victory.

Emery had left Mesut Ozil out of the squad for their Carabao Cup clash against Tottenham Hotspur. It sparked rumours that Ozil has no place in Emery’s plans. However, Emery cleared the air by captaining Ozil against Burnley. The German midfielder did justice to the faith his coach had on him by delivering a brilliant performance.

He delivered an exquisite pass to Kolasinac who passed the ball back to Aubameyang to score Arsenal’s first. Ozil further helped Iwobi score Arsenal’s winner as the Nigerian forward slotted home from the German’s deflected pass. Former Arsenal attacker Ian Wright commented on Ozil’s performance and expressed his happiness in seeing the German get the captaincy.

He said, “It’s good to see him get the captaincy when you’ve seen what’s happened to him. He didn’t play against Bournemouth because of his physicality and intensity. When you’ve got to play against a team like Burnley, and they’re going to give you time, that’s the kind of game where people say he does well.”

He further added that they need Ozil playing. He said, “With all the stuff that has been happening with him, with regards to back spasms and not playing the games we want to see him play, it was brilliant play. He’s [Ozil] somebody who, for me, I don’t think Arsenal can afford to have a player like that and have to choose which games he can play due to back spasms or physicality. We need him playing.
Arsenal currently sit fifth in the point table and have the same points as that of fourth-placed Chelsea, who lost their previous match. Arsenal will be looking to keep performing brilliantly in their upcoming matches and earn a berth to play in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Author’s Take

Ozil delivered a magnificent performance for Arsenal and if the German can keep delivering consistently, it will only strengthen Arsenal’s hopes of making it into the top four. The German certainly has what it takes to be the commanding force for the Gunners in the midfield.
