We all know that Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is a world-class player.
The German is capable of establishing himself as one of the best players in world football if he can consistently produce dazzling displays. But that's the one thing he lacks - consistency.
However, at the moment, the playmaker is constantly putting in incredible performances and he did so once again on Tuesday night.

While it didn’t appear to be his evening as Arsenal surprisingly went 2-0 down against Ludogorets in their Champions League tie, he ended up hitting the headlines in spectacular fashion.
Goals from Olivier Giroud and Granit Xhaka got the Gunners level but it seemed as though it would be two points dropped as they seek a top-place finish in their group.

Ozil had other ideas, though.
With just two minutes remaining, Mohamed Elneny put his teammate through on goal. Instead of simply finishing past the goalkeeper, the former Real Madrid player thought that he'd have a bit of fun.
He dinked the ball over the ‘keeper, before allowing two defenders to get back. Ozil then dummied to shoot to send them both flying in, before rolling the ball into the empty net. It was simply brilliant.
While football fans were wowed by Ozil’s skill, surely his teammates weren't too surprised because they must see things like this every day in training, right?
Well, there was one Arsenal player that was amazed by Ozil’s goal. So much so that he took to Twitter to express his amazement.
That man was Hector Bellerin, who was left at home by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger for the clash against Ludogorets ahead of the north London derby on Sunday.
The Spanish right-back, who was presumably watching on TV at home, tweeted: "Mesut. I mean, we know you are good bro, but WOW!! @MesutOzil1088.”
Yeah, that’s exactly the word that came out of our mouths when we were watching it…’Wow’.
Ozil’s late winner meant that Arsenal have now qualified for the last-16, although they face a battle with Paris Saint-Germain to come top with the two sides joint on points.
Arsenal fans will just be hoping Ozil has saved some magic for the clash against Spurs on Sunday as Wenger’s side look to continue their impressive form in both the league and the Champions League.
