The 27-year-old drilled home from close range to put Arsene Wenger’s men ahead at the Vitality Stadium, and was involved in the build-up as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted the Gunners’ second shortly after.
Ozil wheeled away in celebration and made an ‘M’ gesture with his hand as a tribute to his young niece Mira, while sucking his thumb.
But celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan has had enough of Ozil’s celebration and urged the playmaker to freshen up his post-goal moves on Twitter.
Ozil tweeted on Sunday afternoon:

And Morgan swiftly replied:
Great goal, Mesut, but maybe retire the thumb-sucking celebration now? https://t.co/oUu0vg9ruP

Ozil and his Arsenal team-mates are now gearing up for Sunday’s crunch top-of-the-table clash with Leicester City at Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners are currently third in the table and five points behind Claudio Ranieri’s Premier League leaders.
