Mesut Ozil just can’t do anything right at the moment. No matter what he does, the German World Cup star seems to come in for criticism, and now Ozil is also being blamed for the loss of form of his Arsenal teammate, Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean appeared to be the answer to all Arsenal’s problems during the first half of the season, when he was scoring goals for fun, and terrorising defences throughout the Premier League. However, since Mesut Ozil has returned from injury, Sanchez’s form has dropped off massively.
In his last seven matches, the former Barcelona and Udinese forward has only managed to bag a single assist. This kind of form is in stark contrast to earlier on in the season, when Sanchez totted up 17 goals and 9 assists in his first 31 games for the Gunners.
However, it may just be that the Chilean international is starting to burn out due to the intense nature of English football.
