The Gunners went into tonight’s Premier League clash knowing they absolutely needed a victory to keep on the coattails of the top-four, but both teams started in pretty lacklustre fashion.
But on the half-hour mark, Ozil found another gear, and put the ball on a plate for the arriving Nacho Monreal, who really couldn’t miss from such close-range:

As we’re sure you’re well aware, World Cup winner Ozil is out of contract in the summer, and has been linked with a big-money move to Manchester United where he would be reunited with former coach Jose Mourinho.
If he keeps providing assists like this for the rest of the campaign, he’ll have a lot more suitors than just the Red Devils knocking on his door.
What do you think of the pass?
