What a game Mesut Özil had on Sunday.
The midfielder was perfect. An assist was swiftly followed by a goal, and Arsenal were 2-0 up within nine minutes of the start.
His touch was elegant, one flick out to the left wing in the first couple of minutes is worth remembering, and he showed his strength. Throughout the game he also showed his desire to fight for the ball. Without regularly winning it back, Özil contributed to Arsenal’s high pressure and forced Manchester United to give the ball away repeatedly.
An assist for Alexis Sánchez was quickly followed by a calmly taken first goal of the season by the German. What a player.
