It was quite a performance from Mesut Ozil at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Not only did he create eight goalscoring chances, but he laid on an assist and scored a rare headed goal.
Arsene Wenger was delighted with the World Cup winner’s display, and believes his display was key to a fine attacking performance from the team.
“I’m impressed [with how he played] but when he is sharp physically like that and at that level of performance, he must enjoy it and of course we as a team enjoy it,” the boss told Arsenal Player.
“He can score, he can do what he wants. He has the technical quality, the coordination to score even headers and when he is mobile like that he can get into dangerous areas.
“I think the quality [from the team] was there today and we had all kinds of tests because we were 1-0 down after having started well, so it was a good mental test.
“After that, offensively and defensively, we played very well on the whole and it was good, our quality of passing was good, finishing maybe we could have done a little bit better if you want to be absolutely harsh, but overall we had the quality.”
