Mesut Ozil played a key role in Arsenal’s comfortable 2-0 victory over FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League yesterday evening.
The Germany international was once again unable to record his first assist of the season but was instrumental in dictating the tempo of the game.
Following the final whistle we took to social media to see how Ozil’s performance went down with fans. It’s safe to say the ‘Gooners’ were more than satisfied with the 27-year-old’s role in Arsenal’s win.
2-0 to the Arsenal! Mesut Ozil could assist my murder and I'd die happy #Ozil

1. Mesut Ozil is a genius and you really have to watch him carefully to really understand how good he actually is.

The Gunners have moved up to second place in Group A following the victory last night.
Ozil racked up an impressive 19 assists for Arsenal in the Premier League last season. The former Real Madrid man was just one assist of matching the league record set by Thierry Henry.
Arsenal take on Burnley FC this weekend in the Premier League as they look to continue their run of four consecutive wins.
Ozil is once again expected to start behind striker Alexis Sanchez on Sunday.
