Lots of Arsenal fans have been weighing in on Saturday’s Premier League action, and they’re all bashing Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
Tottenham fell to their second consecutive defeat to Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, and Eriksen was very poor.
The 26 year-old grabbed two goals on international duty with Denmark, but has looked slightly off the pace in the Premier League so far.
The Reds are known for their intense pressing and supreme athleticism, and the game quite simply passed Eriksen by.
Ozil scored the second goal as Unai Emery’s side won 2-1 at Newcastle, but the German is often criticised for “going missing” against the bigger sides.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to Eriksen against Liverpool, and Arsenal fans are loving it.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Eriksen won't be criticised. Why should he? The best players in the world have massive expectations. People expect Ozil to deliver every time. And he will get criticised even when he has a decent game. I will say this – Eriksen isn't fit to lace Ozil's boots.

This is fact, eriksen said it himself two years ago but haters always want to compare any playmaker with ozil because he is the benchmark

Eriksen having a joke of a game at home too, disappeared against a big team. Everyone’s gonna stay silent tho since he isn’t Özil.

Eriksen has given the ball away 5 times & mis-placed 4 passes: all in the second half alone. A complete disappearance act once again in a big game.
His name isn’t Mesut Özil though, so it will go unmentioned.
Stats don’t lie, the media do.

Will Christian eriksen and spurs receive any criticism? No, because they’re not ozil and Arsenal 🤷🏻♂️

Eriksen was non existent today for Spurs! If that was Ozil people would call him a luxury player. Just shows how biased people can be!!

Christian “big game player, never goes missing” eriksen somehow went missing today, however he’s still “world class” because he isn’t Mesut Ozil

Could you imagine the stick ozil would be getting if he played like eriksen today

Imagine if Ozil dropped the performance Eriksen is having , we won’t hear the end of it
