Arsenal 5-1 Bournemouth: Fans Tweet in Praise of Mesut Ozil

mesut ozil scores against Bournemouth

A confident and refreshed Arsenal side saw off Bournemouth with a 5-1 win at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all appeared on the score sheet to keep the Gunners' hopes of a top four finish alive.

In the day's starting lineup was Carl Jenkinson - the man that had to park his car as a result of heavy traffic and run to the Emirates Stadium in order to meet up with a pre-match presentation ahead of the Southampton game a few days ago.

The English international's appearance was his first Premier League start in 830 days. His most recent was at Old Trafford on November 19, 2016.

Ozil, Sokratis and Auba also returned to the starting squad while Alex Iwobi and Lacazette dropped to the bench.

Unai Emery's men opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute through the assist king, Ozil. The midfielder finished superbly past the visiting goalkeeper who obviously looked stranded. You need to see how the German kicked the ball against the ground to lob Artur Boruc to the amazement of the crowd

Mkhitaryan picked out an unmarked Mesut Ozil who then returned a perfect ball into his path for the Armenian to finish into the empty net from close range thereby doubling our lead

The Cherries came back at us not long after we extended our lead. It was our 1000th conceded goal in the Premier League but we were still in full control.

The second half had hardly started when the third came in from captain Koscielny. This was possible as a result of a sensational teamplay from Mesut and Micki.

Aubameyang made it four. It was made five by Lacazette's free-kick, giving us all three points for the night. We remain in fourth spot.

Supporters were impressed by Ozil's performance and wasted no time in heaping praise on him on Twitter.


Arsenal will head to the Wembley Stadium to partake in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday.

The comfortable win over Bournemouth will give them the confidence needed to approach the game with their arch-rivals this weekend.
