Walcott on Ozil and victory over Villa

Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott hailed Mesut Ozil's performance following Arsenal's 5-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Germany playmaker provided the assist for Olivier Giroud's opener before scoring for the second consecutive game to put the Gunners 2-0 up in the second half.

Arsenal bagged three more in the closing stages as they secured their fifth straight win, and Walcott believes the team is hitting form at the right stage of the season.

"Mesut has worked tremendously hard coming back from injury"

"The whole place is buzzing," said Walcott. "When the team is on top of their game everything seems to be happening for them.

"Since Mesut's joined the club I haven't had the opportunity to play with him and I'm very grateful to be playing with such a great talent. Hopefully we can both continue to stay fit and charge up the Premier League.

"Mesut has worked tremendously hard coming back from injury like myself and he's showed it on the pitch today.
