Mesut Ozil is working on improving his body language as he fears Arsenal fans question his commitment.

The German has been the subject of speculation over his future in recent weeks, with the Gunners likely to extend their Premier League title drought to 11 years as rivals Tottenham and champions-elect Leicester look set to trump them in the table.

Despite registering 18 assists - the former Real Madrid man remains on course to break Thierry Henry's Premier League record of 20 in a single season - Ozil has faced criticism over his work rate and the club's record signing has taken notice.

"My goal is to make sure my body language is right," Ozil told BT Sport.

"When I make a mistake, I get annoyed and you can tell from my body language. But these days I try to make sure that I don't do that anymore because in football you can make mistakes and play a bad pass.

"It is more for the fans, the people who watch the game, [rather than team-mates], because they might think that I’m not fighting anymore."
