Stan Collymore and Jamie Carragher comment on Mesut Ozil’s performance for Arsenal v Chelsea in Premier League

Former Liverpool stars Stan Collymore and Jamie Carragher were not impressed with Mesut Ozil’s performance for Arsenal against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has been criticised by many former footballers and pundits for his largely underwhelming performances so far this season.

But no one has compared him to Chelsea flop Fernando Torres... until now.

While watching Sunday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore made a comment that will probably not go down well with many Gunners fans.


This is not the first time that Ozil’s body language on the pitch has been under scrutiny.

The 25-year-old Germany international is undoubtedly one of the best playmakers in the world, but there has always been a suggestion that he does not show enough passion on the pitch.

Lacking pace and physical bullishness, Ozil has been criticised by many Premier League followers of simply not trying enough and not pushing himself. But this is the (probably) the first time that he has been compared with Torres.

Another former Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher, was also watching the match. He, too, was not impressed with the performance of Ozil and made it clear on Twitter.
