After the performances they gave at Goodison Park last Sunday, it’s no surprise to learn that Mesut Ozil is loving playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis.
All three players scored in our win at Everton - Alexis set up Ozil, Ozil set up Lacazette and all three linked well throughout. So why did their combination work so well?
“We are three players who have individual strengths,” Ozil said, “I see it in training when we play together.
“I’m pleased that things worked well against Everton. We made chances, scored goals and it’s a lot of fun to play with these guys.
“I feel 100 per cent fit now. I had knee problems [earlier this season] but in the game at Everton you saw that I’m fully fit and I was relieved to help the team.”
We host Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, having won our last 12 home matches in all competitions.
“At Emirates we’re more comfortable as we have the fans behind us,” Ozil added. “We need to get the same results in away games to be at top at the end of the table. We’re happy to be strong at home and need to show that against Swansea too.”
