‘Lies’ – Arsenal fans lose it as back spasm rules out Mesut Ozil

A North London Derby was always going to put Arsenal fans on edge today and Mesut Ozil’s injury news was never going to go down well…

Comments

Love him, hate him or think he’s a lazy sod, Mesut Ozil’s name is never far from your lips when the topic of Arsenal crops up in conversation.

The German international is probably the most frustrating players in the entire Premier League to watch as he can go from listless and sulky one second, to reminding you of the Galáctico The Gunners once paid over £42m for on transfer deadline day.

What today being Unai Emery’s first ever North London derby, he’ll have wanted his top players to pull out all the stops to be available. However, Ozil had some bad news for him and the Arsenal faithful before kick-off.

That’s right a back spasm is the reason you didn’t see him on the Emirates pitch today and with Gooners supporters never being a shy bunch with their feelings, you just knew they wouldn’t like the news lay.

There seemed to be a common theme in the replays to the tweet on the Arsenal Twitter account though, and that’s someone is lying…

Thankfully, Ozil’s injury didn’t hamper Arsenal too much as they put Spurs to the sword 4-2 later in the day.
