Mesut Ozil opened the scoring in Arsenal's recent victory over Dinamo Zagreb when heading home Alexis Sanchez's precise cross.

October 1, 2013
Arsenal 2-0 Napoli
Ozil's first Arsenal goal came in just his second home match for the club - and it was scored in some style. Aaron Ramsey sprinted towards the byline before cutting the ball back to the edge of the area. Ozil met the pass with a crisp, side-footed shot that nestled into the corner of Pepe Reina’s net. Ozil was up and running, his goal helping Arsenal to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Arsenal 4-1 Norwich
All seven of Ozil's Arsenal goals in his debut season were scored at the Emirates. This one was special as it was the first of his career scored with his head. In a game remembered most for Jack Wilshere’s Goal of the Season in the first half, Ozil finished a classic Arsenal counter to extend the lead. Santi Cazorla engineered the move, sprinting forward before finding Olivier Giroud, who had peeled out to the right flank. The Frenchman spotted Ozil haring through the middle and delivered an inviting cross for the playmaker to nod beyond John Ruddy.

Arsenal 2-0 Hull
Another fine move, another stylish finish. Once again Ramsey was heavily involved, combining incisively with Ozil and Nacho Monreal on the left. The Welshman’s reverse pass was weighted perfectly for Ozil, whose run had taken him past the Hull defence, allowing him to coolly caress the ball in at the near post.

April 4, 2015
Arsenal 4-1 Liverpool
Arsenal were in fine form in the second half of the 2014/15 season, with this convincing victory over Liverpool the jewel in the crown of a 10-game unbeaten run. Hector Bellerin had already given the Gunners the lead when the hosts were awarded a free-kick just outside the area. Electing to go around the wall rather than over it, Ozil bent his 20-yard effort past the outstretched arm of Simon Mignolet and into the far corner.

October 4, 2015
Arsenal 3-0 Manchester United
Despite having started the season in impressive form, Ozil came into this game without an Arsenal goal in six months. He changed that after just seven minutes, finishing off a rapid counter-attack started by the electric Alexis. The Chilean spotted Theo Walcott in the left channel and, after cutting inside and drawing defenders towards him, the England forward found Ozil in the area. Spotting a gap to the right of David De Gea, Ozil guided the ball past the goalkeeper to help set up a comprehensive victory.
