Wenger: Arsenal fans can influence Ozil form

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted Mesut Ozil's form can be influenced by the opinion of fans.

Ozil registered his 50th Premier League assist in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Watford on Sunday, reaching that mark faster than any player in the competition's history.

That has not stopped the playmaker being the subject of heavy criticism from certain pundits, though his manager Arsene Wenger has never had such concerns.

“Maybe the world has changed, as well," Wenger said. “I believe that personally, I like him as a player.

“When you get negative statements, you have to deal with it. Maybe on that front the players need to be stronger nowadays than before."
