The praise keeps coming for Mesut Ozil, after Arsenal’s No 11 scored his first career hat-trick in Wednesday night’s 6-0 win over Ludogorets.
Shkodran Mustafi knows Ozil better than most, and has outlined what makes his team-mate such a special player.

“I think we all know that he has qualities,” Mustafi told Arsenal Player. “As soon as he has the ball in the last third, he can make things happen and I think all the boys that played up front [on Wednesday] have been terrific for us.
“As I said, it was about taking the chances - we did that. Obviously I’m happy for him, it’s going to give him a lot of confidence for the next game and I’m sure that we are going to need that.
“He has the qualities. He sees his team-mates, he sees all the runs, he has quality on the ball. His passing, his left foot… I think he has all that you need on the pitch.
“So yeah, that’s what makes him good. And then scoring three goals in a game just shows how good he is.”
