Mesut Ozil has already posted on social media following Arsenal’s 3-3 draw with West Ham.
The playmaker, who was uncharacteristically quiet, despite scoring our first goal in the London derby, described the match as “crazy” and claimed that although it’s a pity we didn’t win, a draw is better than nothing.

Now, I love Ozil, but these comments have actually annoyed me. That’s it now, we’re out of the title race. Perhaps we were long ago but dropping two points against the Hammers was the nail in our coffin. I want the players to be feeling this like the fans. I want them to know that they’ve messed up, as Ozil has previously acknowledged.
I don’t want them to just shrug it off. We let a 2-0 lead slip and it’s just not good enough. It hasn’t been good enough all season.
Get off social media and find out what it means to play for our club.
