Arsenal fans happy on Twitter as 28-year-old reportedly doubtful for Liverpool clash

By Danny Wright

Arsenal fans on Twitter don’t seem to be bothered that Mesut Ozil could miss out on this weekend’s clash against Liverpool.

Goal reported that the 28-year-old was sent home from Arsenal training on Wednesday after suffering with flu-like symptoms, which puts his place in Arsene Wenger’s side in serious doubt.

However, Ozil hasn’t been on top form this season and has received harsh criticism from Gunners fans, with the worst coming after their 5-1 humiliation at Bayern Munich in February.

The German World Cup winner was left out of the squad that beat Sutton in the FA Cup in their last game.

Supporters took to Twitter to react to the report and seemed to think that their £42.4million man missing out could actually be a positive for the club.

Arsenal could drop as low as sixth place if results go against them this weekend and could even see seventh-placed Everton just three points behind them.

However the Gunners fanbase seem clearly decided on the fact that missing Ozil is not a massive hit to their chances and could even mean more of a star role for Aaron Ramsey or Lucas Perez.
