Alex Iwobi praises ‘world class’ Mesut Özil

Alex Iwobi praises ‘world class’ Mesut Özil”

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has hailed Mesut Ozil's leadership qualities, calling them "world class".

It is the second game in a row in which a free-flowing attack led to a memorable goal after Aaron Ramsey completed a similar move in the recent thrashing of Fulham - and Emery is keen to see more of the same. "When you continue to improve your demands are very high". I would say it's a bit disappointing in the second half, we did our bit in the first half, we did really well.

Now, the club has released the team news ahead of the clash but it doesn't make for good reading, the Gunners could have a crisis at left back. The fixture adjustment meant Arsenal had less than three days between facing the Foxes and kicking off in Lisbon.

In the second-half, the home side dominated proceedings, although Wilfred Ndidi did hit the crossbar with a header just before the hour-mark.

Jenkinson hasn't featured for the Arsenal first team since playing in the League Cup quarter-final defeat to Southampton in November 2016 and has been restricted to turning out for the reserves following an unsuccessful loan spell at Birmingham last season.

It took the Gabon striker less than two minutes to make the difference, sweeping home from close-range after Ozil's flawless pass allowed Bellerin to send in a low cross.

The German let a pass from Bellerin go through his legs to Alexandre Lacazette and continued his run into the area. They levelled just before the break when Ozil sprinted forward and played a one-two with Bellerin before opening up his foot to place the ball in off the far post.

Everyone has an opinion on Mesut Ozil.

Unai Emery has described Arsenal's victory over Leicester City this evening as a "big one" as they came from a goal behind to win 3-1. Scoring goals is important for this spectacle. "He can make us look very risky going forward".

Arsenal took on Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in an English Premier League fixture.

Substitute Aubameyang then stole to show after he came on as a substitute in the 61st minute to ensure Arsenal stretched their winning streak in all competitions to 10 games.
