The verdict on Ozil’s 200th Arsenal appearance

Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil has reached 200 appearances for us, and he did it in some style.

The 29-year-old pulled the strings from a central role at Newcastle - especially in the second half - and he capped an encouraging performance with his first goal of the season.

It was Ozil’s first game at St. James’ Park and Unai Emery was impressed.

“For me, every player is the same - I want to give them the confidence and push them,” he said.

“Today I’m happy because I want every player to have chances to score. Today Mesut scored and I think that’s important. He continued his process on the team, helping with his quality and working every day to continue with the performances we want the team and him to have.

“It’s a new way for him and we want his performance in each training day and each match to give his qualities to us. I want also his best performances for us and today I think that first he worked well and then also I think he did a good match.”
