Gunners boss Arsene Wenger left star players Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny out of the provisional squad but Mesut Ozil was included.
Ozil did not however, make the match day squad and we took a look at how fans reacted on social media to his omission and the impact the Wenger’s decision had on the team.
The other Germany intentional of Turkish origin Emre Can did make the team for Liverpool despite also having Euro 2016 duty over the summer.
There was quite a lot of sympathy felt for Ozil and Alexis Sanchez having to play alongside the rest of the Arsenal team.
Some fans even revealed they would be understanding if Ozil decided to leave.
Real Madrid are reported to be interested in bringing back the assist king.
The Gunners could really have done with Ozil but if he was unfit I guess you can’t really blame Wenger.
As they say… every cloud has a silver lining.
Wenger may just be tempted into make an Ozil-esque signing after that display.
This is what Stan Collymore had to say… Ozil to London rivals Chelea? surely not? surely…
