Arsenal Fans Loudly Sing About Mesut Ozil During 2-2 Draw With Crystal Palace
Arsenal fans loudly sang Mesut Ozil's chant during their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Ozil has been left out of Arsenal's squad for six consecutive games and he has made just one Premier League appearance this season.
Unai Emery continues to freeze out the 31-year-old, but the German midfielder has the full backing of Arsenal fans who chanted his name during their league game.
An Arsenal fan on social media posted a video of supporters singing Ozil's name, accompanied with the following words: "The Arsenal fans making their views very very clear. As I said on Thursday Mesut Ozil retains a lot of support in the fan base & as long as we aren't creating enough, this is always going to be a talking point."

Here's how Arsenal supporters reacted to that video circulating on social media.
"Mesut Özil just sitting behind the bench laughing at Emery with over 60000 fans chant his name!
Absolute scenes!" One social media user wrote.
A second Tweeted: "I'm close to tears right now.... WE LOVE ÖZIL."
A third added: "I don't know what else Emery wants from Ozil."
Ozil recently broke his silence on his form at Arsenal.
"If we don't do well in a big game, it's always my fault. If that's true, how do you explain our results in the big games when I wasn't involved? There's no real difference," he told The Athletic.
"I know people expect me to offer more, dictate play and make the difference. I do, too, but it's not straightforward.
"I'm not the only player in the team and, don't forget, some of our opponents are simply better than us."
Ozil, who's on a reported £350,000-a-week, is attracting interest from the MLS but it's claimed that he'll wait out rather than seek a transfer away from North London.
