Michael Owen so angry at Ozil assist in Arsenal game he swears on Twitter

Michael Owen was not happy to see Mesut Ozil credited with an assist for Theo Walcott's opener for Arsenal against Manchester City.

Mesut Ozil cannot stop providing assists and delivered once again in Arsenal's blockbuster game against Manchester City.

The German international came into the game on a rich run of form, with 13 assists in the Premier League already.

This tally increased when he provided a short pass to Theo Walcott, who hammered the ball into the corner across Joe Hart in the City goal.

Unhappy at the fact Ozil will have been credited with the assist, regular critic of his Michael Owen took to Twitter to express his view.

Usually mild mannered, the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker was unimpressed.

Ozil would quickly go on to dismiss his comments by doing his talking on the pitch.

Minutes later a threaded pass to Olivier Giroud resulted in a second goal for Arsenal as he coolly dispatched it to put the Gunners 2-0 up just before half-time.

Owen acknowledged that on this occasion there could be no doubting the German's impact.

Owen had previously upset Arsenal fans by claiming earlier this year that Raheem Sterling was a better player than Ozil, The Mirror reported. He featured last night but was only a substitute, brought on at half-time by City.
