Mesut Ozil the hero
The Mesut Ozil critics have gone remarkably quiet since realising the Premier League acquired one of the most talented footballers on the planet.
Arsenal beat Ludogorets 3-2 tonight with Mesut Ozil scoring an incredible 88th minute winner to secure their place in the Champions League last 16. Watch the goal here.
The 28-year-old German midfielder also bagged his 200th career assist to start the comeback via Granit Xhaka.

Twitter goes mad for him
Mesut Ozil was trending on Twitter so quickly following his beautiful goal.
Arsenal’s club record signing chipped the goalkeeper before humiliating two backtracking defenders, eventually passing into an empty net.
See some of the best tweets, including Jimmy Bullard’s, below. Hector Bellerin was impressed too…

Only Lionel Messi (7) has scored more goals in the Champions League this season than Mesut Özil (4). New levels of scoring. pic.twitter.com/wmcdYcnJ8T

Ozil to me is a treasure to football that we'll be missing when retired like Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Bergkamp, etc.
