Mesut Ozil Trolls 'Experts' Who Got FA Cup Final Result Terribly Wrong
Mesut Ozil has put down a number of 'experts' after their FA Cup final predictions were terribly inaccurate.
If we're being honest, the majority of football fans, pundits and journalists were backing the Premier League champions going into the game, particularly with the Gunners' deep injury problems at the back.
But Arsenal, to their credit, were by far the better side and thoroughly deserved the 2-1 win, which secured a seventh FA Cup win for Arsene Wenger.
Alexis Sanchez handed the Gunners a fourth minute lead in a dominant first half performance from Wenger's side, where Arsenal's rejigged defence was rarely troubled.
Even with Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel due to suspension and injury, Arsenal's rejigged defence were rarely troubled in a first half where Alexis Sanchez handed the Gunners a fourth minute lead.
Chelsea's attempts to get back into the game in the second half were then hindered when Victor Moses was booked twice in 11 minutes, the second yellow card coming after the Nigerian dived in a desperate attempt to con the referee into awarding the Blues a penalty.
Antonio Conte's excuse for Moses' theatrics was nothing short of laughable, as he blamed it on "tiredness".
Just when everything seemed to be falling in Arsenal's favour, the 10 men went and equalised, thanks to Diego Costa.

It didn't last for long though, as Aaron Ramsey, the match winner in the 2014 FA Cup final win over Hull, was at it again three years on.

Mesut Ozil would then be denied by the woodwork and then a last ditch tackle in an attempt to score a third goal, but Arsenal did the business nonetheless and after the game, the German couldn't help himself but go in on those 'football experts' who predicted Chelsea would be coming away with the trophy.
A number of newspaper journalists, as well as BBC pundit and former player Danny Murphy, were the victims of the brutal put-down by Ozil on Twitter:
Good banter, Mesut.
