Proof That Mesut Ozil Has Eyes In The Back Of His Head
The post-Alexis Sanchez era at Arsenal is off to a tremendous start. The Gunners rained down 14 minutes of hellfire on Crystal Palace on Saturday with Nacho Monreal, Alex Iwobi, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette all scoring between the sixth and 22nd minutes.
Lacazette’s strike was his first in nine Premier League matches, but it was a superbly worked goal with Mesut Ozil providing his sixth assist of the campaign. The German maestro worked a series of one-twos outside the box before cleverly laying off for Lacazette to score.
With Sanchez reportedly “so close” to signing for Manchester United (according to manager Jose Mourinho) in a $83 million deal, the Chilean was not included in Saturday’s squad.
However, the loss of Sanchez has been softened by the news of Ozil reportedly close to signing a new contract, the club making an approach for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the imminent arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
