Mesut Ozil performed terrifically against Crystal Palace and even the Eagles’ fans couldn’t contain their excitement at seeing the playmaker in action up close.
Watching Ozil play in person is a life-changing experience. His movement off the ball is almost as good as his twists, faints and skills on it. Seeing him on TV doesn’t quite do the German justice.
It seems the Crystal Palace fans felt the same as they watched the midfielder control the ball calmly, before casually back-heeling it pass one of their players.
Same, Crystal Palace fans. Same.
