Arsenal star Ozil was 'cheap'

Mesut Ozil made his first appearance at the Emirates Stadium since March on Monday night, and the German has produced few more accomplished displays in front of the Arsenal fans than the one he did against Newcastle.

Ozil scored one and provided another as Arsenal cruised to a potentially decisive victory in the race to finish in the top four, and his performance was enough to earn the man-of-the-match award. It was the type of display Arsenal fans had been expecting after the player’s club record acquisition last summer and, although they have been few and far between, there will be optimism that more will follow.

Piers Morgan, a celebrity Arsenal fan who is never afraid to pick faults in individual players, was clearly impressed by what he saw from Ozil against Newcastle, even going so far to claim that, on the evidence of this game, the £42.5 million paid to sign him was ‘cheap’.

There will, however, remain those that are yet to be convinced that Ozil has justified his price tag, although the 25-year-old will clearly benefit next season from having a full campaign under his belt already.

The addition of more quality players around him would allow Ozil to flourish further and potentially make good on Arsene Wenger’s assertion that he will be the best player in the Premier League during his second season.
