Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has heaped praise on Mesut Ozil saying that he ‘loves to watch’ the Germany international play for the Gunners.
“You love watching the Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil’s of the world play, and someone who does the work which goes unnoticed you don’t really appreciate.” Oxlade-Chamberlain told the Daily Star.
Oxlade-Chamberlain will miss Arsenal’s encounter with Sunderland tonight due to injury. The North London based club take on Sunderland hoping to remain third in the Premier League table and close the gap with second placed Manchester City to two points.
The Gunners have won seven and lost none of their last 10 Premier League matches against Sunderland. Mesut Özil is expected to make his 30th appearance of the season for the Gunners tonight.
Özil has been in good form since returning from injury winning two Vitality Arsenal Player of the Month as well as a PFA Fans Player of the Month awards.
The 26-year-old has covered more distance, scored more goals, provided more assists and improved his sprinting since returning from injury at the start of 2015 according to the official Premier League website.
