Mesut Ozil stars in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Leicester


Mesut Özil played a staring role in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Leicester City in the Premier league.

The 26-year-old playmaker assisted the Gunners first goal in the 27th minute of the game. Laurent Koscielny got his head on the end of Özil’s corner giving Arsenal the lead.

Özil received a rating of 8.43 from Whoscored for his performance and was the second highest rated player on the field after Koscielny.

Arsenal have moved up to 4th place with 45 points in 25 games.
