Mesut Ozil's brilliant highlight reel v Everton shows why Arsenal can't let him join Man Utd

Everton v Arsenal - Premier League

For the first time in the Premier League this season, Sky Sports' Super Sunday truly lived up its billing.

Arsenal travelled to Everton, while Tottenham welcomed Liverpool to Wembley and viewers were treated to a feast of goals.

Arsene Wenger's side finally looked back to something near their best as they put the out-of-form Toffees to the sword, winning 5-2 at Goodison Park.

It could prove to be a watershed moment in the Gunners' season after their 2-1 loss to Watford last time out, with their front three of Alexis Sanchez, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil starting a game together for the first time.

They all found themselves on the score sheet in the dominant display and Ozil was particularly brilliant.

The German playmaker has come under a hefty amount of criticism in recent weeks but appeared fully fit for the first time this season.

Everton simply couldn't handle him and his highlight reel from the game shows why Arsenal will be much weaker if he does choose to move to Manchester United.


Not bad, not bad at all from Ozil.

The Arsenal man created the most chances of any Premier League player in a single game this season with eight. Even the likes of Kevin de Bruyne can't match that stat.

Wenger was, of course, thrilled to see the former Real Madrid man back to his very best and was in high spirits after the game.


"He was superb. Agile, quick, intelligent. Always at the service of the team with his quality of his passing and when he is at that level, he is an exceptional football player," Wenger said.

The Gunners boss was also quizzed on the possibility of Ozil making the move to Jose Mourinho's United after his contract expires at the end of this season.

However, Wenger played down any such reports.

"We live in an environment where we have to deal with the news and the players and myself have only always one response, which is what's happening on the football pitch," he added.

"When you see Mesut on the football pitch like he is today, enjoying his game like he is today, it's difficult to believe these kind of things."

If Ozil can continue to impress, Arsenal fans will be sad to see him go.
