Arsenal faced Stoke in their second Premier League fixture of this season this afternoon and due to new-boy Jesé’s heroics, the Potters ran away with all three points. Despite Arsenal’s poor performance collectively, BT Sport pundits Steven Gerrard and Martin Keown have slammed Mesut Özil, saying the German needs to ‘take a look at himself’.

The result leaves Arsenal 11th in the table with three points which they gained in their exhilarating 4-3 win over Leicester City. However, many fans voiced their concerns over the Gunners’ defence during the clash and they were proven right in today’s result.

In the post-match analysis, Keown took aim at German midfielder Mesut Özil and believes Arsène Wenger would make him sit in the stands if his head wasn’t at the club. The 28-year-old only has one-year left on his contract and speculation over his future has surrounded the club during the summer. However, he looks set to stay at the Emirates but Keown has questioned his mentality whilst donning the Arsenal shirt.

However, he looks set to stay at the Emirates but Keown has questioned his mentality whilst donning the Arsenal shirt, saying: “I feel there that today Özil needs to be doing more for his team. He needs to have a good look at himself, and if he wants away from the football club, Wenger will make him sit it out for the rest of the season.”
