Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil both take to Instagram in the wake of Arsenal's 3-0 win over Manchester United

Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil were the first two Arsenal players to take to social media after helping the Gunners move up to second place in the Premier League table thanks to an impressive 3-0 win over Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The home side raced into an early lead when Alexis Sanchez flicked home Ozil’s low cross in the sixth minute.

And the German playmaker added a goal of his own moments later when he stroked in Theo Walcott’s pass.

Sanchez then made it 3-0 with his second of the day when he fired in a long-range effort in the 19th minute.

Bellerin used his personal Instagram account to pay tribute to the character shown by Arsene Wenger’s men in the wake of their midweek defeat by Olympiacos in the Champions League.

He shared the photo above and wrote: “That’s how you respond!! Well done boys, great character!! #COYG”
