Arsenal fans welcomed Mesut Ozil’s first start in 2019/20 season of the English Premier League. Ozil, who started just 12 times last season, was named in Arsenal’s playing XI for their Premier League clash against Watford after French forward Alexandre Lacazette failed to recover from the ankle injury he had sustained during the Gunners’ match against Tottenham Hotspur. Fans were delighted to see Ozil being named in the playing squad alongside Dani Ceballos and Matteo Guendouzi as Arsenal fielded a 4-3-1-2 formation. Netizens and gunners fans from across the globe let their happiness being known on seeing Ozil starting a game after almost two months. Zlatan Ibrahimovic Becomes the Only Player from MLS to Register Himself Amongst the FIFA 20’s top 100 rankings.

Ozil, 30, was left out of Arsenal’s first four Premier League games in 2019/20 season following a security threatening incident involving club-teammate Sead Kolasinac. He later struggled with illness keeping him out of the squad. But Lacazette’s ankle injury, which ruled him out till October, made Uani Emery call up Ozil and give the German World Cup winner his first start since the Europa League final defeat to Chelsea last season.

Meanwhile, a lot has been made and talked about Emery not giving Ozil enough gameplay time, while others have complained of the German playmaker not taking his chances. Ozil only started 12 times last season and play a total of 24 games out of the possible 38 in the 2018/19 Premier League. He was rumoured to wanting to leave the club last winter and even this summer transfer window but has stayed back due to lack of offers.
