Arsene Wenger has hailed the instant understanding that has been struck up between Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck.
The Germany international combined brilliantly with his new team-mate at Villa Park last weekend, as both laid on assists for the other.
Wenger was pleased to see Ozil returning to his best form in a more central area, but says he may still use him elsewhere over the course of the campaign.
“He played very well and had a good understanding with Danny Welbeck,” he said. “It was a good partnership because they gave each other balls to score.
“It is tempting to keep Ozil in that central role but I maintain again that he will play where he is needed for the balance of the team and that can change game by game.”
