Ozil - It’s always so sweet to win the derby

Mesut Ozil

He was outstanding throughout our north London derby win - and Mesut Ozil admits it is always sweet to beat Tottenham.

The German playmaker was delighted with our display as goals from Shkodran Mustafi sealed the win, and this is what he told the media afterwards:

on whether it’s always sweeter to win against Spurs...
Yes, of course. We are happy, the fans are happy and we are happy to have Musti back. He showed his quality today and you see our defence is more stable and more compact.

on what inspired his performance…
Really on the pitch, I just think about the team, myself and everything on the pitch. Today our aims were to do everything, believes in ourselves and at the end of the day we won the game and are very happy.

on playing with Alexis and Lacazette…
I really enjoy it, I talked to you guys in the past and we have good quality and Lacazette and Alexis are always dangerous, they can always score and today especially Alexis showed his quality. I am really happy for him to score against Tottenham and I’m really thankful to win this game.
