Mesut Ozil sends message to Bukayo Saka after brace vs Liverpool

Former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has taken to social media on Sunday, to send a message of congratulations to one-time teammate Bukayo Saka.

The name of wide-man Saka has of course taken its place centre stage in the headlines once more this evening.

This comes on the back of yet another starring display on the part of the England international.

Mikel Arteta’s troops were back in action a short time ago, welcoming struggling Liverpool to the Emirates for an early-season test of the Gunners’ Premier League title credentials.

And, when all was said and done, to say that Arsenal put the rest of the English top-flight’s clubs on notice would be something of an understatement.

A fine display ultimately gave rise to a deserved 3-2 triumph on the part of the evening’s hosts.

Gabriel Martinelli set Arteta and co. on their way early on, before the aforementioned Saka proved match-winner, courtesy of a brace, including a cool late finish from twelve yards:

The plaudits, in turn, have since flooded in for Arsenal’s Hale End product, who tonight only went about solidifying his position as one of Europe’s standout young talents.

And amongst such admirers, as alluded to above, came none other than former teammate Mesut Ozil.

Taking to his official Twitter account a short time ago, ex-Gunners midfielder Ozil hailed Saka for ‘rocking the Premier League’, sending ‘love’ to the England international:
