The pressure has been growing on Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil with many pundits and fans calling for the German international to be dropped for a few games.
Arsene Wenger’s decision to keep playing Ozil, a world-class No.10, out on the wing continues to baffle everyone and clearly isn’t helping the former Real Madrid player’s form – although it does appear that Mesut is in his favoured position against Aston Villa.
Le Professeur has refused to bow to the pressure being placed on him to give Ozil a few games on the subs bench, and has called for the fans to get behind and support the club’s record signing.
Despite Arsene’s plea for patience with the World Cup winner, Twitter was certainly less than pleased to see Ozil maintaining his place in the line-up:

Guaranteed today: Poor performances from Ozil-Ramsey. Points dropped.

Ozil playing on the left shouldn’t really be an excuse for his poor form coz before anything you’re a footballer that shud want to win

“The fans should not be concerned” Fine,we’ll ignore the fact you spent £42m on Ozil, is in poor form and is stuck out on the left. K mate
