Arsenal legend Martin Keown has heaped praises on Mesut Ozil for his performance in Arsenal's 4-0 win over Newcastle United on Sunday evening at Emirates Stadium.
Ozil played 90 minutes and scored a goal as he helped Mikel Arteta's charges claim an important win and climb into the top half the English Premier League table.
The former German international struggled for fame and game time under Unai Emery but seems that he has been given a new lease of life with Arteta's appointment as head coach late last year.
Keown was particularly impressed by the World Cup winner's attitude and performance and that of youngster Bukayo Saka against the Magpies.
“Mesut Ozil, I thought his movement was really important, there was running off the ball with Aubameyang and Pepe was told that in the second half he needs to get at his opponent, which he didn’t do in the first half.," Keown said in an interview with the Evening Standard.
“It was great to watch. It may have flattered them a little bit, 4-0, but Saka is a player going from strength to strength.
Arsenal travel to Greece to play Olympiakos in the first leg of Europa League last-32 match before hosting Everton on Sunday in a League match.
The Gunners are currently tenth in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC with 12 games left to play this season.
