Immediately after Arsenal’s defeat against Brighton Mesut Ozil did something

Mesut Ozil was not a happy man following Arsenal’s defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion.

It’s now nine games without a win across all competitions for the Gunners and a second home defeat in a row as the Seagulls netted either side of Alexandre Lacazette’s header to leave north London with all three points.

And this poor run of form is beginning to take its toll on the squad.

Despite his goal, Lacazette cut a frustrated figure for large periods of the night.

Meanwhile, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was seen shouting at youngster Joe Willock after the midfielder failed to complete a simple pass to get the hosts on the attack in the first-half.

Ozil then became the third senior Arsenal player to get annoyed on the same night.


As spotted by Amazon Prime Video on Twitter, tempers flared at the final whistle.

Ozil can be seen shouting at someone as he headed down the tunnel, although he does stop to shake the hand of compatriot Per Mertesacker.

It’s unclear as to who was on the receiving end of the playmaker’s ire but even Matteo Guendouzi – an unused substitute against the Seagulls – couldn’t get him to calm down.

The Gunners are back in action next Monday.

They face West Ham United at the London Stadium as they go in search of a first win since mid-October when they came from behind to beat Vitoria in the Europa League.

Speaking ahead of the game, David Luiz did urge his side to start showing some consistency.

“We have to be consistent, and at the moment we are not,” he said.

“That’s why this change has been made, and now we’re going to take in new oxygen and try to win some games.”
