Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been given the PFA fans' Player of the Month award for April.

The German World Cup winner was given the award for his stellar performances which include guiding the north London club to their second consecutive FA Cup final.

The 26-year-old was vital in the semi-final setting up both Alexis Sanchez goals, as the Gunners scraped past Reading. Arsenal's record signing is often criticised for his lack of work rate but was tireless during Arsenal's 1-0 victory over Burnley.

Earlier in the month, Ozil scored an incredible free-kick in a 4-1 rout of top four challengers Liverpool, all but ending their Champions League hopes.

The midfield maestro tried but failed to unpick Chelsea's brick wall defence but was one of the standout performers.

Ozil has found his feet at Arsenal

The former Galactico increased form coincided with his move back to attacking midfielder, a position he hasn't played in since Arsenal's 3-0 victory at Villa Park, where he set up one and scored another.

The £42.5 million player has missed much of the season with a raptured knee ligament but has started to find his early Arsenal career form.

The Gunners' fans will be desperate for Ozil to carry his form into the FA Cup final so the club can win their second trophy in as many years.
