Ozil and Cazorla's brilliant commentary on Arsenal's 2015 win vs Man Utd

With a long-standing rivalry spanning much of the Premier League's existence, Arsenal versus Manchester United is always one of the first games fans look for when the fixtures are released each season.

In recent years, though, it is the Red Devils who have often had the upper hand with the Gunners having won just one of the last 10 meetings in the league.

The one Arsenal win came in emphatic style in a 3-0 victory last October. And, exactly 12 months on, the club relived the magic moment by having two first-team stars, Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla, commentate on the victory. The results are must-see for Gooners...

The game itself, on October 4, 2015, saw Arsenal come out the blocks flying at the Emirates and establish a 3-0 lead within the first 20 minutes.

Two special goals from Alexis Sanchez and a smart finish from Ozil stunned Louis van Gaal's United at a time when both teams were occupying a top three spot in the league.

Obviously, Ozil and Cazorla were in the think of the action at the time, but they've now offered their "unique" insight on the game by taking part in Arsenal's regular 'UnClassic Commentary' feature.

As well as complimenting each other's work on the day - specifically Cazorla's incredible control around the 1:40 mark and a rare slide tackle from the Spaniard at 2:05 - the two Gunners stars were happy to joke about their teammates too.

From making reference to the odd sight of Ozil using his right foot for an assist to pestering Sanchez to pass the ball, both players weren't exactly being unbiased in their commentary of the famous win.

Perhaps the best moment, though, is when the camera focuses in on an upset looking Ozil as he sees he is being substituted off.

Reacting to the footage, the German midfielder looks slightly sheepish before admitting he is always angry when he is removed from games.

The result against their rivals will live long in the memory of Arsenal players and fans, but everyone connected with the north London club will be hoping they will have more to celebrate in the months ahead.

After a stuttering start to the new league campaign, Arsene Wenger's men are now unbeaten in six games and have won five in a row - including an impressive 3-0 rout of Chelsea last month.

Like this time last year, Arsenal find themselves in third place in the table and they will be looking to sustain a title challenge for longer than they managed in 2015/16.
