Mesut Ozil was a happy man after helping Arsenal secure a 2-1 win over Manchester City on Monday night
Mesut Ozil was all smiles as he posed for a picture with Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Flamini after Arsenal’s impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City on Monday night.
Ozil was named man of the match as goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud handed the Gunners victory and moved them to within two points of leaders Leicester City.
And the Arsenal trio looked to be in good spirits in the dressing room after winning the final Premier League game before Christmas.
Ozil posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Aaarsenal! Aaarsenal! Aaarsenal! Brutal team efficiency. Our first half was the key to success today! #YaGunnersYa #AFCvMCFC #COYG”
Flamini shared the same picture on his own account and wrote: “Top victory!! Great performance,great team spirit… Proud to be a #gunner @arsenal”
Walcott fired the home side into the lead in the 33rd minute with a superb low shot into the bottom corner.
Giroud then doubled Arsenal’s lead on the stroke of half-time when he slotted his finish between Joe Hart’s legs.
Yaya Toure pulled one back for the visitors with eight minutes left with a superb shot into the top corner to set up a tense finale – but the Gunners held on to claim victory.
