Mesut Ozil couldn’t hide his delight at Arsenal leapfrogging the best side the world has ever seen to take third place and push Tottenham even further down the league table.
Just under two months ago, Arsenal were some 10 points behind Spurs in the race for a top four place but as the Lily Livers collapse, Arsenal have taken full advantage.
Speaking to the media after his Man of the Match performance against Newcastle, Mesut Ozil was doing his best not to laugh when the subject of Tottenham came up.
He wasn’t quite able to manage it.

Although Ozil didn’t register a goal or assist against the Magpies, he finished the game with two key passes, five crosses, and 12 ball recoveries while covering 10km.
