Fans react to Mesut Ozil's display in Arsenal defeat to Barcelona

Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil played the full 90 minutes during Arsenal’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Barcelona.

The 27-year-old played in his favoured number ten role behind Olivier Giroud but was unable to dictate the play.

In Ozil’s defence the Gunners were limited to just 25% of possession meaning the Germany international was in main restricted to taking set peices.


Following the game we took to social media to see how Ozil’s performance went down with fans. The Germany international was widely criticised for failing to stamp his authority on the game.

Ozil made two key passes, one accurate cross and maintained a passing accuracy of 78%. The 27-year-old’s only defensive contribution was one tackle.

The La Liga champions were without Turkish international Arda Turan due to suspension but we will be available for the return leg at the Camp Nou.

Ozil who has been in fantastic form in the Premier League this season. The World Cup winner has provided 17 assists in the league this season.
