Mesut Ozil v Everton
That was Mesut Ozil’s best game of the season for Arsenal.
No doubts, no questions, no quibbles.
Often singled out as Arsenal’s weakest link, Ozil was at his creative best from the get-go at Goodison Park.
Ozil had a great chance to give Arsenal the lead early on, while he found his killer instinct in the second half.
The German World Cup winner scored a header to put Arsenal 2-1 up against the Toffees.
With 15 minutes left in the game, Ozil then turned provider as Alexandre Lacazette scored his first goal for Arsenal away from home.
Is Mesut Ozil joining Manchester United?
The future of Mesut Ozil looks like being one that dominates the football gossip pages for quite some time.
The German playmaker has less than a year left on his Arsenal contract and over recent days has been heavily linked with Manchester United.
On Friday, John Cross in the Daily Mirror reported that Ozil has told Arsenal team mates he will be joining Manchester United.
This comes amid the fact that Arsenal no longer seem keen on keeping Ozil. And, may let the German superstar and Alexis Sanchez leave in January.
Do Manchester United need Mesut Ozil?
After Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town there will be a lot of Manchester United fans wondering whether Ozil is the player they need.
Whilst he would not have provided much fight or desire, his quality to release the likes of Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford is clearly needed.
United fans praise Ozil
With all that said, Man United fans took to social media during the Evertongame to sing the praises of Arsenal’s playmaker.

Ozil is clearly far from finished, simply relies on his ability over pace. Would take him at United all day.
