Mesut Ozil had an eventful night as Arsenal were beaten 3-0 by Aston Villa on Sunday.
The 32-year-old was a spectator for the game at the Emirates Stadium as he can’t take part in Premier League games this season after not being included in the squad by manager Mikel Arteta.
That decision came back to haunt the Arsenal boss as his side struggled to create any clear cut chances and drew a blank for the third time in four league games since the last international break.
But could Ozil have made a difference against Villa?
Well, according to some Gunners supporters the answer is yes as they flooded the playmaker’s Twitter account during the game with messages saying how much they missed him.
Interestingly, Ozil – who has since unliked several of these tweets – appeared to agree with what was being said about him.
Arteta will resubmit his squad for the Premier League as well as the latter stages of the Europa League – should his side get out of the group – in the new year, but will he recall Ozil?
