Arsenal fans hail “magnificent” Mesut Ozil after narrow 2-1 win at Crystal Palace [Best Tweets]

Arsenal charged out of the blocks at Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, taking the lead through a superb Olivier Giroud acrobatic finish.

The Eagles equalised through Joel Ward before Alexis Sanchez rose highest at the far post to help the Gunners to their first points of the season.

Often maligned German playmaker Mesut Ozil took all the plaudits in the 2-1 win, assisting his teammate Olivier Giroud for the opening goal and producing a wonderful all-round display.

Aged 26, Ozil has failed to wow the Premier League as expected since moving from La Liga but has a very loyal fanbase amongst the Arsenal supporters.

He was rather surprisingly not given the Man of the Match award, with Santi Cazorla awarded it instead.

Criticised heavily for his performance against West Ham last week, the £42m record signing from Real Madrid received a lot of love on Twitter from Arsenal fans. See some of the best tweets below.
