    Former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil appeared to have taken a dig at his former club and manager Mikel Arteta following their 5-0 thrashing to Manchester City.

    The Gunners have been enduring a horrid start to the Premier League as they lost all of their three first fixtures by conceding nine goals without scoring once.

    Ozil, who now competes for Fenerbahce, took to Twitter where he posted the following: "Trust the process."

    This has been seen as a tongue-in-cheek tweet targeting a saying that a large section of the north Londoners' faithful have coined in regards to giving Arteta more time

    Things can only get better after another chastening weekend for the Gunners.

    Mikel Arteta's side were hit for five by Man City and currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League, with three defeats from three.

    At least it's a Bank Holiday.

    On the transfer front, expect the Gunners to be busy before the window closes tomorrow night.

    But Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang is set to stay, according to reports.

    There were whispers that Juventus were on the hunt for the star's signature, but Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the Gunners skipper is not on the Old Lady's shopping list.

    Arsenal are eyeing up incomings though and reports also suggest Marco Asensio could be on his way to the Emirates.

    The Spaniard is on the fringes at Real Madrid and is available for around £34m.

    And Willian has almost completed his departure from North London.

    The Brazilian will leave the club and head to Corinthians on a free transfer, ending his Premier League tenure.

    Shearer told the Mail: "That’s 11 red cards in his career, you can’t excuse this.

    "All he’s said to his teammates is 'sorry you’re on your own I don’t feel this today'. Who he’s trying to impress? I don’t know.

    He told BT Sport: "It's hard to find positives for Arsenal because at times it's been disarray.

    "You have to stay on your feet, stay concentrated and don’t do anything rash. In modern football you cannot leave the floor.

    "Granit Xhaka has done it many times before – he’s just signed a new contract, he’s a senior player on the pitch.

    "In a moment when you need someone to have a cool head, he’s gone through him and it’s a sending-off."

    "He is above and beyond a good manager. The correct personality, he is incredibly loved by all of us. We were sad when he left. Sometimes people expect and want results immediately.

    "The squad he played today is not the team he dreamed because they have six, seven, eight injuries – really important players.

    "Absolutely, I am a big fan of him and I’m pretty sure, if they trust him, he will do a good job at Arsenal."

    Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has called for crisis talks within the Emirates camp after yesterday's humiliating defeat against Manchester City.

    He said: "Today it wasn’t enough, and against a team like City even when it is 11 against 11 you have to take risks and be brave on the ball, and we didn’t today.

    "After the red card it was a different game, but this is not enough and everyone has to raise the level, work harder as a team and stick together. This is the only way to go forward.

    "We have to play with courage. This type of game we have to play with everything and take risks, but we just didn’t do enough today.

    "I think we have to talk between us players, and I think this is important because we are Arsenal, and we have to show our wounded pride.

    "We have to talk, and say the truth between each other, be honest and raise the level."
