Arsenal’s whole team were criticised after the 2-2 draw against Hull, but Per Mertesacker came under specific criticism. Here’s how the Arsenal fans reacted to the German’s performance.
Mertesacker the tall man who can't jump.

Very disappointing that Flamini and Mertesacker gave up on defending when foul wasn't given for Diame goal.

Wenger needs to drop Mertesacker for the next games. He's been a liability this season. Chambers-Koscielny please.

Anyone else think Mertesacker isn't the defender we all talk him up to be without Koscielny? Seemed that way in 12' with Vermaelen and now

Has anyone noticed that Mertesacker, is better on the ground than in the air? Just look at Hernandez's goal yesterday.

Mertesacker has lost it. Ball watching… ATTACK THE BALL

Looked as if Mertesacker had no idea where Hernandez was. Good run between the centre-halves and a cracking header to beat Szczesny. 1-2.
