Ian Wright has named Mesut Ozil as Arsenal’s most technical player but questioned the German midfielder’s performances for the north London side.

The Germany international was a noticeable absentee from Arsenal’s side for their trip to the Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Ozil missed the Premier League clash due to a muscle injury as Arsenal produced a dogged performance in a goalless draw at Chelsea.

The World Cup winner has struggled to impress for Arsenal so far this term and was heavily criticised for his performances at Stoke City and Liverpool.

Indeed, as is often the case after a poor Arsenal display, Ozil was made the scapegoat following their 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

Former Arsenal legend Wright wants to see much more from Ozil given his undoubted talent.

“He is easily for me the best technical player at Arsenal,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “You just don’t see it enough.

“He doesn’t get himself in positions where he can really help Arsenal.”

Ozil moved to Arsenal in a club-record £42.5m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season and missed out on a place in the Champions League.

The north London side have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons under Wenger.
