Top 3 Performers For Arsenal This Season
Arsenal have, so far, had the most dismal season in any of the last twenty-two years of Arsene Wenger's association with the club. Not what you want, especially considering it is now the last season at the helm for the Frenchman.
We wonder what the future holds for the North London club with uncertainty certain to grip the club in the months and probably years to come.
However, a few bright sparks in a lacklustre Gunners' side should give them something to build on for the post-Wenger era. Here are three such players for Arsenal:
#3 Mesut Ozil
Yes. Shockingly, such have been the standards of the FA Cup holders this campaign that even a far from his best Mesut Ozil slots into the list with ease.
The German has experienced his least effective campaign in his last three years at Arsenal. He has recorded the lowest number of assists (14) and scored just 5 goals (compared to 12 last season). He is also languishing in 10th place on the assists charts this season, behind his team-mate Henrik Mkhitaryan.
However, when Mesut Ozil does turn up for the Gunners, there are few better sites in world football at the moment. Like how he humiliated CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarter-finals.
The World Cup winner has put in some very telling performances in the red and white for Arsenal, despite his tendency to go missing in a number of matches through the season.
To be honest, the lack of a better alternative in this disjointed Arsenal squad is the determining factor for Ozil's selection on our list. We tried to look around but who do we pick instead? Danny Welbeck, or a rudderless Hector Bellerin?
