Mesut Özil has regularly come under fire for his performances in an Arsenal shirt, but stats provided by Oulala show just how unfair some of the criticism he receives really is.
Our record signing has been constantly berated by the media, and has been branded a flop by many.
His recent performances have been superb however, and he deserves some credit for the way he has been playing.
Despite Özil being named a flop, his stats make for far better reading than those of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian has been earning rave reviews for his performances this season, and is being recoginised as one of the Premier League’s top performers.
Our man has blown him out of the water in every aspect however, with these stats showing just how unwarranted the treatment of the German playmaker has been.
Arsenal fans are starting to recognise the contributions of Özil, and hopefully soon the rest of the footballing world will follow suit.
