The uncreative chant? Arsenal fans’ new song for Mesut Özil (as sung at Sunderland)
Mesut Özil had a brilliant debut performance for Arsenal at Sunderland on Saturday, and some of Özil’s stats were eye-popping.
The German international had a 90% pass accuracy against Sunderland, he chalked up his first Gunners assist in just the 11th minute of his Premier League, and overall he had 34/38 passes completed in the final third.
Özil’s excellent start at the Emirates gave the Gunners fans plenty to sing about at the Stadium of Light, and the supporters showered him with praise with a new chant.
Sung to the tune of 1-0 to the Arsenal, the fans bellowed: Ozil to the Arsenal… Ozil to the Arsenal… Ozil to the Arsenal… Ozil to the Arsenal…
Whilst some Arsenal fans may think the Özil chant was spot on, there have been better song proposals for German, including: Cazorla to the left of me, Özil to the right, here in I am stuck in the middle Giroud!
