Ozil in action against Bournemouth.

West Ham fans furious because Arsenal supporters stole their chant

Published 2 Comments

Mesut Ozil found the back of the net in Arsenal's match against Bournemouth this afternoon, and of course the travelling fans celebrated.

Then, something happened. Something heinous. The Arsenal fans stole a chant from another team. The police are in the process of issuing a statement.

The incident occurred in the first half at the Vitality Stadium when Olivier Giroud teed up Ozil to break the deadlock. Seconds later, the Arsenal fans were celebrating again as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled the lead.

Soon afterwards, the Arsenal supporters started a chant designed specifically for Ozil, or so most listening would have thought. It goes: "We’ve got Ozil, Mesut Ozil, I just don’t think you understand. He’s Arsene Wenger’s man, he’s better than Zidane. We’ve got Mesut Ozil."

That brought out West Ham fans in droves, and they were not happy. Why? Because they had come up with the chant for their own playmaker, Dimitri Payet. Or stolen it from Newcastle fans who sang it for Yohan Cabaye, whatever. You can check out the totally measured and in no-way-over-the-top reaction below.

Arsenal fans won't be too fussed having watch their side take control on the south coast. The goals from Ozil and Oxlade-Chamberlain were the first for the Gunners after a three-match goal drought, and helped move the north London club back to being level on points with rivals Tottenham.

The win means Arsene Wenger's side are in third place, five points behind surprise table-toppers Leicester City.
