The former Arsenal defender and Martin Keown has slammed Mesut Ozil and his teammate for over celebrating following their win over Leicester City last weekend.

Mesut Ozil and his teammates were pictured celebrating their 2-1 win over Leicester in a tweet sent out by Alexis Sanchez after the game.

“As for Arsenal tweeting those pictures after beating Leicester, I haven’t got time for that,” Keown told the Daily Mail.

“I think I’d only take my photo with team-mates if there was a trophy involved.

“It was telling that there no Petr Cech in that photograph – he knows what it’s like to be a winner and I’m sure there are plenty of photos of Cech in the dressing room at Chelsea but he’ll have a trophy in his hands.

Ozil was rested for the Gunners clash with Hull in the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium.

The 27-year-old has created 105 chances for his side this season and has racked up 17 assists in the Premier League alone.

Ozil is expected to return to Arsenal’s starting line-up for the Gunners encounter with Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League this week.

The World Cup winner has six goals in all competitions and 17 assists in the Premier League – the highest in the league.
