MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil apologized to fans on Thursday for missing a penalty during the Gunners 2-0 UEFA Champions League defeat at home to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. Ozil’s spot-kick early in the first half was palmed away by Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. After that, things went downhill for the Gunners, who were reduced to 10 men just before halftime when goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was sent off for taking down Arjen Robben in the penalty area. Though the resulting penalty was missed, goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller sealed the win for the German treble winner.

On his official Facebook account, Ozil wrote: "the next morning doesn't feel better either. sorry guys - it wasn't planned that way. outnumbered it was really hard to win against this team. #ucl #AFCvBAY" Ozil has struggled for form over the last few months after making a promising to life in North London following his move from Real Madrid last August.

Teammate Per Mertesacker noted that Ozil just needs time to properly settle, as he did following his blockbuster 42.5 million pound ($71 million) move to Arsenal in August 2011. "We have a lot of games here in England and everyone is tired, but it is not just up to Mesut," Mertesacker said, adding, "Mesut has played a lot of games and he is a massive player, we need him at his best. Game by game, he will come back stronger."
