Tottenham fans have absolutely torn into Arsenal star Mesut Ozil on Twitter after his non-existent display in the 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace.
The 28-year-old Germany international played the full 90 minutes of the Monday evening humiliation at Selhurst Park.
Former Spurs man Andros Townsend opened the scoring for Palace, while goals came elsewhere from midfield duo Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic.
A number of Gunners players were heavily criticised after the defeat and one of the main targets seemed to be attacking midfielder Ozil.
Many felt as though his performance was one of a player not fully committed to his team, while others feel he is just overrated.
His poor display particularly caught the eye of the Tottenham fan base on social media and while one described Ozil as “utter tripe” another suggested he could learn from star Dele Alli.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
We need a new song for Dele. Clearly embarrassing to put a non league player like Ozil in the same song about our maestro! #coys

The best bit was when Ozil actually passed the ball to the sub warming up. Lovely stuff. #coys

Didn't see Ozil complete a pass tonight. Piss poor. He could learn a thing or two from Dele #COYS

Ozil is such utter tripe – he's not even worthy of his mention in the @Dele_Alli song. #COYS

Ozil joined Arsenal for a huge £42.5million fee from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.
He has since played in 151 matches for the club, scoring 30 goals and providing 54 assists as he enters the final year of his deal in north London.
