Ozil opened the scoring for the Gunners in the first half at the London Stadium when he tapped home Sanchez’s low pass.

Sanchez then set the game alight in the second half when he scored a hat-trick to add to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s goal and send the Gunners back to within three points of Premier League leaders Chelsea.

The win was Arsenal’s second victory on the spin in the Premier League league and kept them in the race for the title.

With both Sanchez and Ozil currently believed to be in contract talks with Arsenal about extending their deals with the club, Gunners fans will be hoping that the German’s post on Saturday night is a hint that both players are willing to commit their futures to the club.

Ozil shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Good night, Gunners… 😴😉 @arsenal”

The German had already posted this selfie after the final whistle.
