Mesut Ozil hailed Arsenal’s team spirit after Wednesday night’s 2-0 win against Southampton at St Mary’s.

The Germany international started in Arsene Wenger’s team on the south coast as Arsenal looked to keep their top-four hopes alive.

Alexis Sanchez broke the deadlock in the 60th minute before Olivier Giroud wrapped up three points with seven minutes to go.

Arsenal moved to within three points of fourth-placed Manchester City thanks to their success at Southampton.

Arsene Wenger’s men are four points behind Liverpool in third place but have a game in hand on the Merseyside club.
