Arsenal beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in the International Champions Cup clash at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Los Angeles, USA.
Mesut Ozil played 81 minutes putting on an impressive display that was widely praised by fans and pundits on social media.
Ozil looking very very sharp so far.

All in all, an uplifting evening for #AFC. Ozil & Aubameyang looking sharp, while Willock, Nketiah and John-Jules show why there is so much excitement around this generation of academy kids.

Huge roars for Lacazette, Ozil and Aubameyang when their names are read out. Louder than any of the Bayern players.

Ozil took to social media after the game to share a photograph of himself sporting his new blonde hair while throwing up a hand sign that we can only assume stands for Los Angeles – LA.
The playmaker of Turkish origin thanked Los Angeles for hosting them and described the match as being a ‘good test’.
Ozil has received a warm reception in the United States and only recently shared another Instagram photograph regarding the Arsenal supporters he has encountered on the trip.
The North London based outfit will also take on Real Madrid and Fiorentina as part of the International Champions Cup.
Arsenal face Fiorentina next on Saturday followed by Real Madrid on Wednesday.
The Gunners will then take on Lyon at the Emirates Cup final in London followed by a trip to France against Angers and the final leg of the preseason campaign will be a friendly away to Barcelona.
