The Gunners manager, Mikel Arteta, spoke on the future of Mesut Ozil earlier this week.

I’m saying we will decide what’s happening in the next few days. I don’t know what is going to happen. Obviously, now he’s free to negotiate with other clubs. We will discuss internally what the best solution for him is for the near future, obviously with the player and agent too, and try to find the best solution for everyone.

Mikel Arteta

During his seven-and-a-half career at Arsenal, Ozil has made 254 appearances, finding the back of the net on 44 occasions and providing 77 assists for his team-mates and has three FA Cup winners’ medals to show for his efforts.

Mesut Ozil is set to leave Arsenal. Did his omission from Arsenal’s premier league squad factor in this decision?

Along with Sokratis, Mesut Ozil was left out of Arsenal’s 25-man premier league squad earlier in the season. This could be one of the reasons why Mesut Ozil is set to leave Arsenal. The pair also did not make the squad list for the Europa League group stages. Ozil’s last game for Arsenal was on 7th March 2020 against West Ham United in the Premier League.

Silver Lining.

Mesut Ozil’s transfer could be a good thing for all three parties involved. Arsenal gets to trim their squad and wage bill by getting rid of players who no longer feature in their long-term plans. Fenerbahce adds to their squad a proven playmaker and a World Cup winner who, on paper, makes a vast improvement to their team. Mesut Ozil gets to play the sport he loves again in a country that he loves.

Manchester United Fans Show Disgust At Romero Treatment

Sergio Romero in action for Manchester United

Manchester United fans have shown their displeasure at the treatment of one time second choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero. The fans are displeased with the way their club has handled the Romero situation. This was vivid in the fans social media posts.

Why Romero Lost It

Last season, Romero played the role of the second goalkeeper and was entrusted with the cup games. However, during the latter stages of the competition, Ole decided to use first choice goalkeeper David De Gea. This meant that Sergio Romero was to enjoy the matches from the bench. Manchester United got eliminated from the competition at the semi finals stage. This was disappointing to the fans since they preferred Romero to De Gea. Romero reportedly showed his displeasure at being denied the chance to perform his role in the team.

The Transfer Request

The Argentine submitted a transfer request with some decent premier league sides in need of his services. However, Manchester United did not accept any offer and decided to keep him. At the time, Ole had already frozen him out of the team and made Dean Henderson the second choice goalkeeper. Moreover, Romero was axed from the season squad. His wife was frustrated by this mistreatment. She took to social media expressing how Romero had been treated with disrespect and wanted to leave Manchester United. The season started with the Argentine still frozen out of the squad. Since he has not been registered for the season matches, he has had to settle for mild trainings to keep his form as he anticipates a January move.

The Fan’s Verdict

The fans have given their opinion about the issue, with most advocating for a move for the goalkeeper. Most fans feel the goalkeeper should be allowed to leave for a club of his choice having given a hundred percent effort whenever he played for Manchester United. United fans consider him one of their best goalkeepers of modern times due to his impressive statistics in the cup games.

Also Read

At one time, he was nicknamed ‘Mr Cleansheets’ and even earned the title of ‘the best back up goalkeeper in the world’. This was due to his regular performances that saw him keep clean sheets day in day out. The goalkeeper is famously remembered for the incredible role he played in the 2016/17 Europa league season. United won the trophy with Romero between the posts. Both the goalkeeper and the fans will be expecting the goalkeeper to part ways with the club in January. This is in a bid to save the already soiled relationship between the two.

Tammy Abraham opened the scoring sheets following a poor back pass to one of Barnsley’s defender. Mount threaded the ball past Barnsley defense, setting up Havertz’s first goal for Chelsea.

This hat-trick against Barnsley is Kai Havertz’s first in his senior career. This match was his 153rd appearance in competitive football. The 21-year-old has been at the center of a lot of ridicule in social football circles because of his previous performances in a Chelsea shirt. He has failed to score or assist in last matches. Furthermore, zero chances created. However, he is a young and rising talent and will take some time to adapt Premier League football.

Out of Position?

Frank Lampard fielded a 4-2-3-1 formation in this match, with Tammy Abraham playing upfront. Hudson-Odoi played in the Right Midfielder position, whereas Mount played on the Left Midfielder position. On the other hand, the German youngster played as the CAM. It seems he has played out of position in past matches, based on his performance in this match.

In his first Premier League match versus Brighton, he had a deeper role in midfield. Lampard fielded a 4-2-2-2 formation in this match. Against Liverpool, he was fielded as a false 9. Chelsea played a 4-3-3 formation in this match. Afterward, he was subbed after Christensen earned himself a red card. After conceding two goals against Liverpool in the second half, Lampard shifted to a 4-4-2 formation. If the goal was to prevent more goals, the change in formation worked.

Some tweeps deemed the move to pick Kai Havertz was to boost his confidence. He will probably feature this Saturday in their away match to West Bromwich Albion. Havertz’ hat-trick has definitely created expectation among Chelsea fans. Will he replicate his good run Bundesliga here?
