Mesut Ozil takes to Instagram to celebrate Arsenal's 3-1 win over Sunderland at Emirates Stadium
Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to heap praise on Arsenal for their battling 3-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday.
Arsenal took the lead in the 33rd minute thanks to Joel Campbell’s opener in north London.
However, the visitors drew level on the stroke of half-time when Olivier Giroud scored an own-goal to hand Sunderland a lifeline.
But despite appearing to be nervous for long spells of the game, Arsenal went ahead again in the 63rd minute when Giroud made amends by heading in Aaron Ramsey’s pass.
And Ramsey made the three points secure when he bundled home from close range following Calum Chamber’s deflected shot in stoppage time.
The 27-year-old Ozil notched up his 12th Premier League assist of the season during the victory at Emirates Stadium.
And the German World Cup winner posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday evening and wrote: “Three incredibly important points in this time of the season! #YaGunnersYa #AFCvSFC #BPL”
