There is no doubt that Arsenal fans are buzzing right now after watching their team put Bournemouth to sword on home turf in their midweek fixture in the Premier League.
Arsenal’s meeting with the Cherries was an opportunity for Unai Emery to reinstate Mesut Ozil into the starting eleven once again after the German star’s erratic season.
There have been moments this season where it has seemed as though Ozil will be ditched by the club in the summer but his superb displays as well on some occasions have defied that notion.
On Wednesday, the 30-year-old was back at his best as he scored with a magnificent finish very early on in the first half of the game before he added another assist to his name, passing the ball to Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the Gunners’ second goal.
Arsenal fans are notorious for changing their opinion about the midfielder whenever it is convenient and Ozil was applauded after Wednesday’s show of quality.
Mesut Ozil went to take a corner In front of me, got a huge cheer from the crowd, and tapped the arsenal badge. I love him 😭

Ozil recent performances shows that maybe Emery was right to drop him until he was fully fit and committed to work for the team. If Ozil continues playing like this we have a great chance of finishing in the top 4. He looks a rejuvenated player.

Does any other player try that clever bounce into the ground & over the keeper finish? If not, we should probably call it The Ozil. Top class tekkers.

Superb performance Arsenal. Ozil simply sensational at times and key for creativity. Confidence up for biggest game of the season Saturday…. a win there and we can finish in top 3 which would be incredible season.
