Arsenal dropped down to 4th place in the Premier League following their 0-0 draw with relegation battlers Sunderland yesterday afternoon.
The Gunners slim title hopes came to an end following yesterdays encounter and now have to fend off Manchester United and West Ham United for forth place.
Ozil was included in Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven and was deployed in his favoured number ten role behind the striker Olivier Giroud.
The Germany international received a warm reception Arsenal fans on despite the teams disappointing result.
Mesut Ozil has created 137 chances this season and only managed 18 assists , if we had a decent finisher it would be scary

Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Peter Cech look dazzed, suddenly dont know how to win under Wenger. Wenger simply lacks the art #Wenger

Mesut Ozil needs to leave Arsenal for the sake of his career. He will never advance as a player creating chances for Giroud or Welbeck.

The former Real Madrid man has been in stunning for this season and has provided the highest number of assists in the league this season (18).
Ozil could have more assists to his name had it not been for the profligacy of his teammates.
The Germany international has created the most chances in the league (122) but the Gunners have the lowest goal record in the top four.
