Ozil tops our Goal of the Month poll

It will come as no surprise to learn that Mesut Ozil's stunning strike against Newcastle has been voted as our Goal of the Month.

The Germany international scored the only goal of the game as he volleyed a first-time effort into the top corner against the Magpies.

Ozil's strike was the overwhelming winner with 75 per cent of the votes cast, with Jack Wilshere's strike against BATE Borisov in second place and Alexis' effort against Crystal Palace in third.

Player of the month

Ozil voted December Player of the Month

It's two in a row for Mesut Ozil, who has picked up his second Player of the Month prize on the bounce.

The Germany international, who topped the November vote, was in fine form throughout December, and scored our Goal of the Month as we beat Newcastle before adding a brilliant goal against Liverpool.

Ozil topped an incredibly tight poll by virtue of number of votes cast to edge out Jack Wilshere, with Alexis in third and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in fourth.
