The Arsenal fans could be heard chanting his name for large periods of the game
It was the first time the former Germany international had featured in a match-day squad since the last round of the EFL Cup, although mananger Unai Emery claims he remains in contention for Premier League games.
“We had decided beforehand (to take off Ozil). He worked well in 65 minutes,” he said.
“Ozil played very well. He played a very good match. We are going to play on Saturday and in my mind there’s the possibility to use him again.”
