Arsenal 3 Zagreb 0: Ozil wows

A few quick thoughts on a routine win.

This, for me, was all about the performance of Mesut Ozil. I’ve long accepted the stats that detail his extraordinary assist record, I’ve appreciated that his talents are subtle and yet I’ve always felt there could, indeed should, be a little bit more.

Tonight we got it. He got people to their feet time and again with superb skill, inventiveness, bravery and intuition. He got one goal, could have had more and just looked integral to our play in a way he doesn’t always. Very welcome
