Steve Claridge: Mesut Ozil is Arsenal's weak link

Mesut Ozil is Arsenal's "weak link", according to Steve Claridge.

Claridge bemoaned Ozil's lack of effort after Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

He said, "Ozil gave the ball away at least six times and never once did he react to try and get it back. That's a dangerous precedent to set and if I'm one of his team-mates it's quite depressing actually."

Conor McNamara agrees that the World Cup winner is a "luxury" player but thinks Arsenal need to find a way to get the best out of him.
