Arsene Wenger explains why Mesut Ozil was so impressive against Everton

Arsene Wenger explains why Mesut Ozil was so impressive against Everton”

"That is normal because that is football".

"He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together".

Nearly 15 years to the day since Wayne Rooney announced himself to the world by scoring that goal against Arsenal, a now 31-year-old Wazza scored another beauty at Goodison Park, giving supporters another false dawn before the crushing reality set to follow.

'I've been very critical of Ozil and I think rightly so, ' Keown said on Match of the Day 2.

Aaron Ramsey got his name on the scoresheet in the 90th minute before Everton pulled one back through Oumar Niasse in injury-time; but Alexis Sanchez still had time to score one more goal for Arsenal with virtually the last kick of the match.

"If you're looking from an Everton point of view, that's exactly how you don't play Arsenal".

Arsenal supporters were treated to a first-ever starting lineup featuring all of Ozil, Lacazette and Sanchez, and a five-goal return represents a pretty promising debut. According to Opta, over that span, no other Premier League player has managed more.

Ozil, in particular, had been heavily criticised after a poor start to the season and missed a good chance to kill off the game at Watford last weekend after coming on as a substitute in the 2-1 loss.

Koeman switched to a back four with the removal of Ashley Williams intending to shore up space but it left a gap at the back and Ozil nipped in to head home Sanchez's near-post cross in the 53rd minute.

"This was the first time that Wenger deployed a forward line of Ozil, Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette in the Premier League".

A hard situation was made worse when Gueye, after a first-half booking on Sanchez, was shown a second yellow card after going in late on Xhaka.
