After losing in the midweek against Everton, Arsenal suffered another defeat away from home vs Manchester City yesterday.
The Gunners now find themselves nine points behind league leaders Chelsea and may forget about winning the PL title for another season.
The North Londoners started the game brightly, scored an early goal and went into the break leading 1-0. However, they were terrible in the second half.
In the second forty five minutes, Arsene Wernger’s men only had two touches in the Man City box. Record signing Mesut Ozil was average against the Toffees on Tuesday night and the German performed even worse against the Sky Blues.
The Arsenal playmaker has been criticized for not showing up against big team in the past as well.
Yesterday, he was not ready to fight for the Gunners. City were leading 2-1 and the former Real Madrid star was seen walking with twenty minutes left in the game as if he had already given up.
Arsenal fans were furious with Ozil’s performance and destroyed him on social media.
Here are a few tweets:

@Arsenal we lost this game thanks to our lazy player. OZIL.He succeeded in messing up the midfield. Why can’t Iwobi play that role
