2. Mesut Ozil’s price tag certainly bogged him down
There was a time when I played football in the nearest playground and I remember, if I had won a penalty as the opposition tripped me down, I would get up and take the penalty on my own. Whether I scored or not, hardly mattered. This might just be what Mesut Ozil might be thinking, after missing the spot kick, Ozil went into a shell and never quite recovered. The German looks a shadow of his former self, the mesmerizing one at Real Madrid and Wenger must contemplate whether relegating him on the bench, would give him desired results, rather than him being the liability of the London side. It will be very important for the gunners that their record signing must forget his penalty blushes and concentrate on upcoming fixtures.
