Mesut Ozil says Jack Wilshere’s goal in the 4-1 win against Norwich was so good it looked like something you would see in a PlayStation game.
The England international’s strike - which came after a flowing move involving Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud - is already being talked of as the Goal of the Season.
"It was real 'tiki taka' - almost like they were playing PlayStation! It was an unbelievable goal"
Ozil, who scored twice in the match, was pleased with his own display but was in no doubt as to the real highlight of a thrilling 90 minutes.
"I've got to praise the three players involved for the first goal,” he told Arsenal Player. “It was real 'tiki taka' - almost like they were playing PlayStation! It was an unbelievable goal.
“I know that I can still improve but I'm happy with my display and the performance of the team. Aaron Ramsey showed that any player who comes on will do his best for the team and will get involved in tackles and attacks immediately.
“That's why we've been in such good form. I'm really proud of the team. We're taking what the manager wants us to take into games and are making strides. Now we've got another three points and can be pleased with that.
“[Confidence] is really high. We know what we can do but we won't get carried away. It's still very early but we know how much potential we have in the team. We just enjoy playing and it shows on the pitch. We fight for each other and we are always there for one another. That's why we've been so successful.”
Ozil admitted he was touched to hear the supporters chanting his name at the end of the game and says it capped off a perfect day.
“It was an emotional experience for me,” he said. “I had goosebumps when I heard! I'm so thankful to the fans, who have supported both myself and the whole team.
“We're showing our thanks with our good performances on the pitch. I hope that they can continue to get behind us as they have been and I can guarantee that we will continue to play attractive football.”
