Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil was quick to take to social media following his side’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City at the Emirates, which left the Gunners seven points behind the Citizens in the final Champions League spot.

Despite falling behind to an early Leroy Sane goal, Theo Walcott equalised for the hosts before Sergio Aguero gave Pep Guardiola’s men a half-time lead.
Ozil gave the ball away in midfield in the lead up to Aguero’s goal, although he did provide the assist for Shkodran Mustafi’s equaliser as his pinpoint corner was headed home by his Germany international teammate.
The midfielder’s contribution often comes under scrutiny from supporters of the north London outfit, and the clash on Sunday was no different as the 28-year-old failed to show commitment to a 50/50 challenge with City goalkeeper Willy Caballero in the second half.
Here is a selection of the Twitter reaction regarding Ozil…
