Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Mesut Ozil is in need of a boost to his confidence after his run without a goal extended after a 2-0 Premier League win at home to Hull City on Saturday.
The Germany international has not found the net since December 12 when he scored against Stoke City, Ozil making eight Premier League appearances since his last goal.
“Maybe it’s time for him to score a goal again,” Wenger said after Arsenal bounced back from successive Premier League losses.
“He needs to find confidence again. He misses chances that don’t look unfeasible for him.
“I felt he was not completely confident, technically. That’s a problem, because you think he can deliver something special.
“It’s true that technically he did things that he is not used to doing. I don’t know. It can happen. I can’t think of a specific reason. I had a chat with him on Friday. He looked alright.”
