Arsenal players want more from Ozil defensively

Arsenal's players are unhappy with Mesut Ozil's work when they're not in possession.

He was visibly shaken by his vital penalty miss during Wednesday's Champions League loss to Bayern Munich. And it was no surprise to see Mathieu Flamini snap at Ozil over his half-hearted attempt at tracking back midway through the second half.

Jack Wilshere and Per Mertesacker also had cross words with the talented playmaker during the loss at the Emirates Stadium.

TheDaily Mail says it is an issue that has been bubbling away for some time, with those at the club's training ground understood to feel that Ozil should contribute more defensively during matches.
