Ozil is back after Champions League exit, says Wenger

Sammy Stanley | 08 April, 2017, 01:29

The playmaker scored his first goal since Dec 10 with a curling shot into the far corner and he also laid on the second for Theo Walcott. In February, former Gunners defender Martin Keown said "you don't know when he is coming or going" and labelled Ozil an "expensive luxury,"per James Restall for the Daily Mail".

Wenger is still yet to announce whether he will sign a new contract to remain as manager or leave at the end of the season. "I feel for a few weeks now in training he's really focused again, and that comes out in the game". They were stronger all over the pitch, every time we got the ball, we looked scared and kicked it straight back to the Gunners.

"I wouldn't just say the goals (helped his confidence), you could see it was slowly starting to come back", the England global told Arsenal's official site.

"Someone reminded me that we have scored more than 100 goals already this season".

West Ham will attempt to put a run of five consecutive defeats behind them at the London Stadium and halt a unsafe slide towards the Premier League relegation zone. But we need that win.

"But more importantly we haven't been defending well as a whole unit, not keeping clean sheets".

"You could see that even if the result was not what we wanted against City it had a positive impact on the morale of the team [tonight]". We needed to go back to basics and we did against West Ham.

'I love Mesut Ozil and I love his game as well, ' admitted Wenger afterwards.

Arsene Wenger believes Mesut Ozil's dip in form was triggered by Arsenal's Champions League annihilation at the hands of Bayern Munich.

"I haven't heard anything", Walcott said. Okay, we are at home and they have improved, but they are five points behind us and there is a reason for that.

'We have to do the job, ' he said.

"We've got the belief. The next two games, against Swansea and then Sunderland, are huge". "He is in great shape and is focused and motivated and he should be a big asset for us at Arsenal". Elneny does not possess the same intelligence in possession but, in tandem with Xhaka, he was able to inject sufficient tempo into this performance to help secure three precious points.

On Wednesday night, the Hammers lost 3-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, a result which extended their run of successive defeats to five games and left them looking over their shoulder towards the relegation zone.
