Mesut Ozil played a staring role in Arsenal’s victory over Sunderland in the Premier League yesterday afternoon.
The North London based side recorded a 3-1 victory moving them up into second place in the standings behind Leicester City.
Ozil received a rating of 8.5 from WhoScored after making five key passes and taking 122 touches on the ball during the game.
The Germany international has been in great form for Arsenal so good in fact that even players on rival teams have had to admit just how impressive he has been.
Tottenham playmaker Cristien Erikson was quoted by the Metro as saying: “I used to watch him when I was at Ajax and he was at Real Madrid.
“It’s a joke how good he is.”
The Gunners have 30 points after 15 games and take on Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League next week.
Following the game we took to social media to see how Ozil’s performance went down with fans.
Mesut Ozil is what other fans pretend their 10 is.
