“When you have the likes of Giroud in the box, Alexis Sanchez running at people and Theo too, Mesut can see a pass and control the game in the same way that Santi does,” Henry told Arsenal Player.

Henry went onto state that Arsenal can win the league if their star names maintain a consistent high level of performance throughout the season.

“I keep on mentioning players, all that we are waiting on is the consistency in the league,” he added.

“I saw some of the players talking about that consistency, and I know they have the quality to do it.”

Özil has been in Los Angeles on holiday for the past week and has kept his social media followers updated with his day to day activities which have included forming the ‘La Familia’ gang, clubbing until the early morning and spot of foot-tennis.

The Germany international ended the 2014-15 season with his second consecutive FA Cup title.
