Let me just out something out there for the Arsenal fans who have been moaning about Mesut Ozil all week and blaming the German international for our loss at Watford last Saturday. Ozil may have failed to secure the points just before the penalty that turned the tide, but it was a save, not a miss.
Ozil was in the right place to score a crucial goal and has not played for ages. The likes of Walcott and all miss chances like that all the time and they are strikers while Ozil is not. As soon as he came on he produced a killer ball that could have led to the second goal and so what I am saying is that he does have an ability to create chances that most other Arsenal players do not.
But there is that idea that Ozil is not fully committed to the Arsenal cause and only Wenger can decide whether this is true and, if so, whether he can afford to play Ozil against an under pressure Everton who are bound to be up for it.
The Toffees may be in poor form and struggling for confidence but they will put the effort in and that is why carrying a passenger, if that is what Ozil would be, might be a luxury and a risk we should not take. What do you think Gooners? And if it is a no, who should replace him in the Arsenal side on Sunday?
