The playmaker of Turkish origin shared a photograph of himself celebrating alongside a caption which read: ‘Proud captain’.
Ozil also revealed that he thought Arsenal played some ‘sexy football’.
The 30-year-old now has five goals in nine appearances this season and also provided his first assist.
Ozil became the highest performing Germany international in Premier League history in the process taking his overall tally to 30.
This was perhaps his finest moment over the course of the 90 minutes but there were so many fabulous passes and of course his goal that it was pretty difficult to pick just one.
