Arsenal: Fans call for Mesut Ozil after shock loss to Sheffield United

Arsenal have been calling for Mesut Ozil after the club lost to Sheffield United in the Premier League last night.

Should Arsenal have signed Zaha over Pepe?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Gunners lost 1-0 thanks to a goal from Lys Mousset midway through the first half. Arsenal created very little in front of goal with the best chance falling to Nicolas Pepe, who failed to convert from close range.

In all the Gunners had nine shots at goal, however, only three of them were on target with none in the final 18 minutes (via WhoScored).

Last night wasn’t the only game the side have failed to create chances in. The game at home to Bournemouth prior to the recent international break saw Arsenal create just one shot on target from open play.

Ozil has been frozen out by manager Unai Emery this season, only starting two of the club’s 12 games in all competitions.

Former Arsenal man Paul Merson expressed his shock at the 31-year-old’s omission from the line-up, saying he should be starting (via Daily Star).

Fans took to Twitter to ask for the reintroduction of Ozil after last night’s game.

Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

Arsenal fans, would you reintroduce Ozil into the starting lineup? Let us know your thoughts!
