Petit: Ozil Was Just A Ghost During Arsenal 3-1 Defeat At Etihad

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has slammed Mesut Ozil's performance in the Gunners' 3-1 defeat at the Etihad at the weekend, labelling the playmaker as "a ghost."
"Arsene Wenger was honest after the game, acknowledging his opponents as the superior side," the ex-France international said in his Paddy Power column.

"But in the first half, he was too shy. He was afraid of Manchester City and his team were passive as a result. I think more substitutions should have been made in the midfield area: Özil was on the pitch, but he was just a ghost.

"Arsène said before the game on Sunday that Arsenal would come to the Etihad to attack. He wanted his team to score goals and not to defend, but in the first half he made some tactical errors that made this approach impossible."
