Can you name Arsenal’s XI from Mesut Ozil’s debut in 2013?
It’s September 2013 and Arsenal fans are beside themselves with excitement. After years of scrimping and saving, Arsene Wenger finally got his wallet out and spent big on Mesut Ozil. The good times were back.
We know now that it didn’t quite work out that way. Ozil impressed in phases, but he also went through periods of subdued form and his signing didn’t transform Arsenal into a side that challenged for the big prizes. His legacy can best be described as complicated.
“He is a top-class player, honestly. I think rather than talking about him I would rather watch him play again. If you love to watch football, you love to watch Ozil,” Wenger later said of the mercurial German playmaker.
“It is a combination of quality of the touch, intelligence and team attitude. He is a real team player, I said that yesterday in the press conference. He puts his talent at the service of the team and he wants to help the team with everything he does. That makes him efficient.”
We’re asking you to name the Arsenal XI from Ozil’s debut, a 3-1 win at Sunderland back in September 2013.
