One Arsenal supporter was left embarrassed after his tweet about Mesut Ozil before the Gunners win over Everton completely backfired.
The twitter user, who name is shown as 'Zaid', tweeted: "If Ozil scores today, I'm giving everyone who retweets £10."

Sure enough, Ozil headed in Arsenal's second to put them in front and the twitter user was made to pay for his costly error, simply tweeting: "Well", in a sarcastic manor shortly after. Many users who actually did retweet the post were quick to mock the tweet, which was retweeted 382 times and users were demanding he "pay up" as he was left red faced.
Ozil was outstanding on the pitch, producing a man of the match performance as Arsenal recovered from an early Wayne Rooney strike to win 5-2, a result which cost Everton boss Ronald Koeman his job.
The German midfielder has been linked with a January move to Manchester United after failing to find the form on a consistent basis that earned him a £42m move to the Emirates in 2013, but he looks set to move on either in January or in the summer when his contract expires.
