‘Confusing!’ These Arsenal fans can’t understand what Unai Emery has done against Cardiff

Mesut Ozil has returned to the Arsenal side to face Cardiff City on Tuesday night – and Gunners fans have been left slightly confused.

The German ace has been left out in the cold by Unai Emery in recent weeks, with his last start coming during the 1-1 draw at Brighton on Boxing Day.

But Emery has handed him a surprise start against Cardiff this evening, as the Spaniard shuffles his pack somewhat ahead of Sunday’s game at Manchester City.

Ozil starts at the tip of a midfield diamond, with Mohamed Elneny, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi behind him and Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a front two.

Emery’s decision to bring Ozil back into the side and name him as captain has certainly caught plenty of Arsenal fans by surprise.

Given how he has been treated in recent weeks – with many failing to really understand Emery’s handling of the situation.

Here’s a selection of what’s been said on social media.
