Arsenal returned to winning ways on Wednesday night following their victory over West Ham.

Mesut Ozil was the star of the show on the night. The Germany international scored Arsenal’s opener and provided an assist for Theo Walcott.
Ian Wright is a big fan of Ozil and revealed that he would have loved to play alongside the playmaker. Wright also defended Ozil from criticism about his work-rate and style.
“He does what he does,” Ian Wright told BBC’s Match of the Day.
“It’s his demeanour that upsets people, because he throws his arms up when he loses the ball.
“When he gets into good positions like last night and the way he picked out Walcott through a crowd of players, that’s what he does.
“It’s unfortunate for him because of his languid style, he gets a lot of stick.
“I feel for him, but I’d still play him because as a forward, I would want him behind me, let him play through all the rubbish.”
Arsenal will be looking to record back-to-back wins when they take on Crystal Palace. The Eagles have won four of their last five league clashes.
