The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is well aware that the Gunners are not at their best right now and he knows that the Arsenal fans are not happy after seeing the team slump to a second defeat in a row against a previously out of sorts Chelsea side.
But the talented play maker has also issued a rallying cry and promised that he and his Arsenal team mates will keep putting in the hard work on the training field in order to make sure that this situation does not carry on. As reported by the Evening Standard, Ozil used his facebook page to reassure worried Gooners and remind us that it is still very early days in the season.
He wrote, “Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you’d hoped or expected.
“The last two matches don’t reflect where we are standing as a team. We will focus on our practice even more now and prepare for the next big games!
“The season is still young…”
To be fair to the German, he has been doing his bit. Despite coming in for plenty of criticism, a Metro report a few days ago revealed that Ozil has created more chances in the Premier League during 2015 than any other player.
I have also done a stats comparison on Squawka.com between him, David Silva, Fabregas and Hazard for this season and it shows that Ozil is beating them all when it comes to chance creation and key passes. And he would be winning on assists as well if our strikers were finishing better.
But if Arsenal are putting in the work that Ozil says and he keeps creating, surely his words comments will be proved right and the Gunners will soon be back on track. What do you think?
