One Football that Sead ‘The Tank’ Kolasinac made nothing of the rumours swirling about Özil’s future. In the interview, he said:

Many people complain(ed) about Özil’s lack of enthusiasm, and at times he’s been called a luxury player. I mentioned in this article here that Arsenal fans by now should know the player they’ve got in Özil. He won’t run the ends of the earth like Torreira or Guendouzi, neither will he turn up in every game. By the way, no player turns up 100% in every game.

The players know the quality Özil brings and so seem to be solidly behind him. Passes like the ones he made against Burnley or Leicester are the reasons you want him on your team. The only player who can creatively hold a candle to Özil in the Premier League is Christian Ericksen, and
Rotten Totten-Spurs have him. Until we have a close replacement, let’s enjoy and make the best of the player we have in Özil.

In other news, Pierre Emery Aubameyang has claimed the spot of the highest goalscorer in the English Premier League. He’s closely followed by Harry Kane.
Granit Xhaka made the top 10 assisters in the league but the stats show that we’ve been horrible in defence. Crystal Palace have more clean sheets than we do. Yeah, go figure. See the full stats of the Premier League as at 23rd December 2018 here.
