Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette bumped the north Londoners up into third, with bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur dropping down to fourth after they lost to Liverpool on Sunday.

It was an excellent display from Unai Emery’s team and some beautiful football was played at times during the match from the hosts.

At the heart of everything was Ozil, who was starting his second game in a row for the first time in 2019.

He put in five crosses, created two chances, made 63 successful passes and covered an impressive 10km, according to Sky Sports.

The ex-Real Madrid ace was bang in the mood and even finished the match wearing the captain’s armband.
