Arsene Wenger had barely finished his post-game speech when Mesut Ozil was on his phone, sharing his “burning” ambition to play table-toppers Leicester next Sunday to his 5.6 million Instagram followers.

The German scored Arsenal’s opener in their 2-0 win against Bournemouth which saw Wenger’s team leapfrog Manchester City into third.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added a second as Arsenal sealed their first win in five league games in style.

After the game, Ozil posted this image on Instagram.

The message is great. The excessive use of hashtags and three fire emojis, however, isn’t.

Much-needed win

The Gunners picked up a much-needed win after falling off the pace in the Premier League title race. Ozil and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first-half goals, less than 90 seconds apart, knocked the stuffing out of Eddie Howe’s team.

The win sets up a juicy encounter at home to Leicester next weekend. Victory for the Gunners will close the gap to the Foxes to two points; a loss will extend it to eight.

It’s not a title decider but, with Tottenham on hot form, it’s important Wenger’s team pick up three points.

Dream team

Ozil and Alexis Sanchez started their first game together in 2016 and you get the sense the pair hold the keys to Arsenal’s title bid. The duo are the difference for the Gunners going forward and they sorely missed Sanchez in the first few weeks of January.

Ozil’s goal took him to six for the season and means he scored in both of Arsenal’s 2-0 wins against Bournemouth.
