Mesut Ozil looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with Shkodran Mustafi in the dressing room after helping Arsenal record a thumping 5-1 win over West Ham United on Saturday night.

The Germany international playmaker opened the scoring for the north London side in the first half when he tapped home Alexis Sanchez’s low pass to put the Gunners in control.

Sanchez was in inspired form throughout, and the Chilean scored a second-half hat-trick to send Arsenal on their way to victory.

Sanchez scored either side of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s curling strike as substitute Andy Carroll netted a consolation for the hosts.

Ozil was quick to take to social media after the game as he posed for a picture with Mustafi in the dressing room.

The German shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “#YaGunnersYa! 😎 This win is so needed to keep up the pressure at the top of the @premierleague! 👍😉 #COYG #WHUvAFC @arsenal”
