Özil tried to lift Arsenal but the team let him down

Match Review: Man Utd 3 Arsenal 2 - Premier League 28.02.16

It should have been a routine win, but a rotated team put in a lacklustre performance against an ultra defensive Hull side. It adds an unwelcome extra fixture to our busy calendar and the game at the KC will not be easy at all.
