Mikel Arteta has overseen the club’s worst start to a season in almost 50 years, though is understood to retain the backing of club bosses.
A 4-1 home humbling by Manchester City was the latest downturn in a dire season for the Gunners, with Ozil again watching from home after being excluded from all matchday squads.
The World Cup winner conducted a Twitter question-and-answer session with fans and was asked about his happiness at the club.
“It’s a very difficult time for everyone around the club – not just for me,” he responded.
“The situation is frustrating for everyone. Of course I would wish I could help the team especially right now, but as long as I don’t get the chance I just hope that we get better results very soon again.
He then added in a follow-up tweet: “But let’s stay positive!”
