Per Mertesacker: 'Crucial that Arsenal hit back against Everton'

Per Mertesacker: 'Crucial that Arsenal hit back against Everton'”

Everton opened the scoring through Wayne Rooney before Arsenal equalised through Nacho Monreal, and from there Arsene Wenger's men well and truly took control of the affair. "Ozil as well. The two of them were sharp physically, very mobile and if you have their individual quality, that makes them unsafe against any defender", Wenger said after the win over Ronald Koeman's side, as quoted on Arsenal's official site.

The 2014 World Cup victor with Germany scored once in Arsenal's 5-2 win at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal have moved up to 5th in the league following the win, but have remained nine points adrift of Manchester City.

It provided a fitting response to their defeat at Watford last time out and Ozil - who could well leave in the January transfer window with his contract expiring at the end of the season - put on a scintillating showing on his return to the starting XI. I'm satisfied with the way we played.

"[Ozil] was superb. Agile, quick, intelligent". "I believe he has now come back from injury, he has worked very hard".

Germany playmaker Ozil played a starring role in the Gunners' 5-2 thumping of Everton on Sunday, putting the visitors ahead with his first goal of the campaign.

"The two of them were sharp physically, very mobile and if you have their individual quality, that makes them risky against any defender".

"We were 1-0 down after a good start in the game where we couldn't finish".

Wenger added: "We didn't panic, we maintained our focus on the game, and after that, it looked like it was all us for the rest of the game".

"I was (concerned) because recently we've been punished for every mistake we make away from home".

"But with this team I have the squad to go further, so let's see".

"That was a test but we kept going, kept our focus and the quality of our movement and quality of passing caused them problems".

"After that, with the offensive strength we have, of course that made the difference".
