Ozil struggled against Everton

Captain-on-the-day Mesut Ozil has been singled out for criticism after a particularly uninspiring performance, which ended with him throwing his jacket at Toffees boss Marco Silva.

And legendary jockey McCoy believes the club are woefully short of fearsome leaders, especially compared to previous Arsenal sides.

“We were spoilt as Arsenal fans,” he told talkSPORT.

“I look at that ‘Invincible’ team that had Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Sol Campbell, Kolo Toure, Ashley Cole, Ray Parlour.

“Not one player in the current Arsenal team would get into that team.

“And the other thing is, if I was lining up in the tunnel and looking at the Invincible team, I’d be thinking, ‘Oh my God, these lads are going to batter me’.

“I watched Ozil floating around yesterday like he hadn’t a care in the world.

“I wouldn’t be a good captain at Arsenal at the moment, I can tell you that!”

Die-hard Arsenal fan Sir AP McCoy believes there is nothing remotely threatening about the current Gunners squad.
