The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are not feeling optimistic about their chances against Man City this weekend…
The Gunners have seriously struggled in recent weeks, and have now dropped out of the top four – leaving many in the pub fearing that they won’t finish in the Champions League places this season.
Indeed, the problems are showing no signs of slowing down, either, with the London-based outfit set to take on Man City this weekend.
However, the Gunners have received somewhat of a boost in the lead-up to the game – with Mesut Ozil reportedly set to be fit for the clash. Ozil has missed several weeks of action, but the Evening Standard are reporting that he has managed to finally shake off a hamstring problem.
Our landlord thinks that Ozil’s return could be just what Arsenal need, with the Gunners really lacking the flair and creativity that the German so often brings to proceedings.
Ozil’s form this season has been disappointing this season, and a turnaround from the German is being demanded by those in the pub. Indeed, he has so often been Arsene Wenger’s catalyst in the past, and our landlord thinks that it might be up to him to turn his manager’s season around.
