Michael Owen adds negative spin to Ozil’s performance vs Ludogorets?



Michael Owen wants to see Mesut Ozil deliver in the “massive games” for Arsenal after the German’s brilliant hat-trick in Wednesday’s 6-0 thrashing of Ludogorets.

Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all got on the scoresheet to put the Gunners in control of the Champions League Group A game at The Emirates.

Ozil then hit the first hat-trick of his career to add gloss to the scoreline and help Arsene Wenger’s men take a step closer towards the knockout phase of Europe’s elite club competition.

And although former Liverpool star Owen was happy to give Ozil credit for his performance, the former Liverpool striker wants to see him perform on a more regular basis for the Gunners.

Speaking on BT Sport after the final whistle, Owen said: “He’s a lovely footballer to watch, he’s silky.

“You don’t want to have a go at anyone after a performance like this [but] I’d love to see him really grip big games.

“He can perform, we know he can score goals, [but] I want to see him do it in a massive game, one of the big Premier League or Champions League encounters.

“But of course he is a world class player on his day.”

Arsenal now turn their attentions back to the Premier League and their home clash with Middlesbrough at The Emirates this weekend.


The north London side have won their last six games in the top flight to leave them level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.
