There’s a good piece on Ozil on Arseblog News. Plenty of evidence that he no longer adds much value.
Arseblog didn't really conclude that. It was just showing that he is down on the percentages compared to before but both him and lacazette are having collect the ball a lot deeper which means they do not get to spend much time in the final third.

While i agree he is not as good as he used to be, he is playing better than 90% of the ppl in this team including Aubameyang who is absolutely @#$%& at bringing other team mates into play. He is no where near playing as badly as ppl are making out to be.

I can't believe nobody has noticed how poor the off the ball runs are of Lacazette and Aubameyang and how many times they miss the return pass to the midfielder when the back is played into both of them.

Just watch the first 20 min of the Burnley game and check the amount of times the attack breaks /slows down because the weight/direction of the past from Lacazette and Aubameyang is @#$%& poor.

Ozil is 30+, no where near his best levels for us, but the build up play of the midfield is so poor and couple that with the awful passing abilities of the front 2, you get what are our current paying stats. Emery is a big reason for this decline as well because of the style of play or lack of it imposed by him over the past year.
