Arsenal fans disappointed Ozil could feature v Liverpool

Mesut Ozil may be Arsenal’s most expensive signing but it’s fair to say he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and the German World Cup winner was highly criticised in the wake of the Gunners’ 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Whilst the entire team underperformed in that clash, Ozil has consistently attracted negative attention with an attitude that is perceived to show him not trying hard enough and has earned a reputation of underperforming in big matches.

There is evidence to suggest that isn’t the case, as Ozil boasts some impressive performances with the North London side, but there is equally evidence to suggest the opposite- and that’s concerning ahead of Saturday afternoon’s huge clash with Liverpool.

Arsenal will be desperate for a victory to bolster their chances of retaining a Champions League spot next season and Ozil’s fitness for the match has been under question, as the former Real Madrid man has been battling illness.

However, Arsene Wenger revealed that Ozil should be available to feature at Anfield on Saturday- and it’s left many Arsenal fans unimpressed.
