No doubts.”While Ozil has displayed his full repertoire of creative talent throughout his time in England, he was unable to help Arsenal past United in his latest outing.An enthralling encounter at the Emirates saw the Gunners dominate for long periods, only to find David de Gea in imperious form.Arsene Wenger’s side also made costly mistakes at the back, allowing United to take advantage and sweep to a 3-1 win – even after seeing Paul Pogba shown a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Hector Bellerin.
