3 Things We Learned From Napoli vs Arsenal

As the Italians met the Gunners at the Stadio San Paolo in the Champions League group stage matchday 6. Arsenal, Napoli and Dortmund all finished the group with 12 points, which saw Napoli crash out on goal difference while Dortmund topped the group thanks to Grosskreutz’s 87th minute goal against Marseille. Arsenal despite their 2-0 loss, will go through as runners up.

So here are the three things that we learned from last night’s game.

Mesut Ozil cannot always be given full responsibility for creativity

Mesut Ozil

The German may be magnificent at his best, but when you put him up against a world class defence, he doesn’t always shine as we saw yesterday. Too easily closed down by Christian Maggio out wide while Miguel Britos dispossessed the former Real Madrid man almost every time he tried to attack the Partenopei. Arsenal cannot just rely on Ozil and should have enough talent in their squad to create goals from everywhere, not just one player.
