German International, Mesut Ozil, delivered a phenomenon showing today as he helped the Gunners back to winning ways after losing their two last matches. The 31 years old provided two assists as his side beat Burnley by three goals to one at the Emirates stadium in the premier league early kick off.
The German had been relegated to the bench in recent games fuelling speculation that all was not well between him and their new manager, Unai Emery.
The skillful midfielder however, was at his usual best today as he announced his presence on the pitch with well weighed pass to Sead Kolasinac in the 13th minute and the Bosnian cut back for Aubameyang to bundle home.

His display today has sparked reactions from fans.
What they are saying:
He has his critics, but if you ever need a player to make something happen against a bottom-six side at home, Mesut Ozil is your man. #ARSBUR

That’s what Mesut Ozil can do, tease a ball through tight spaces. Such a gifted footballer with vision and technique. Issues with consistency, tracking back, seizing games against the elite etc, but the talent is undeniable. Emery challenging Ozil could be the making of him. #afc

Having tactical reasons is important but playing Mesut Ozil is importanter.
