Unless an Arsenal player other than Mesut Ozil produces something extraordinary between now and May, the Germany international is nailed on to win the club’s Goal of the Season award.
Few footballers in the world would have been capable of displaying the same technique and composure as Ozil did against Ludogorets on Tuesday evening.
The 28-year-old brilliantly dinked the ball over Milan Borjan in the Ludogorets goal before leaving two defenders on their backsides and slotting into the empty net.
However, former Arsenal defender Martin Keown doesn’t believe it’s the best goal Arsenal have scored in the Champions League.
In fact, the 50-year-old reckons two goals - both scored by Thierry Henry in Europe’s elite club competition - were better than Ozil’s solo effort.
Keown: Two goals were better than Ozil's
“Mesut Ozil had an awful lot of fun with that goal,” Keown told the Daily Mail. “It was tantalising the way he made his audience wait for the moment he went in for the kill. And when he did, it was in typical Ozil fashion — feathering the ball into the net. How many players would have blasted it from that position?
“Ozil is becoming more ruthless. It's OK being Mr Assist, but the next step is to become the main man and start scoring goals. That's what we're seeing now from him.
“It was a great goal but Thierry Henry's run and finish against Inter Milan was possibly better. Henry also scored a superb goal against Real Madrid - I think he has the monopoly on Arsenal's best Champions League goals!”

Henry runs half the length of the San Siro pitch, mugs off Javier Zanetti and sticks the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

A remarkable goal, scored at the Bernabeu, in which Henry dribbles his way past several Real Madrid players before producing a sublime finish.
