Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to praise Arsenal’s performance after they claimed a 2-1 win over Cardiff in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

The north London side scored twice in the second half thanks to goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette as they claimed an important three points to boost their top-four hopes.

The victory left Arsenal in fifth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and continue their push towards Champions League qualification for next season.

Ozil has been in and out of the Arsenal team this season – and his start on Tuesday night was only his 13th in the top flight this season.

Nonetheless, the playmaker was clearly happy to play his part in the victory and he took to social media to celebrate the win after the game.

Ozil posted the photo below on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Crucial victory 💪🏼 Thanks a lot for tonight’s support @Arsenal family ❤ #YaGunnersYa #COYG #M1Ö @premierleague.”

Ozil will be hoping to start for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a crunch clash against Manchester City at The Etihad.

The German has scored four goals and made two assists in all competitions for Arsenal so far this term.
