“At the moment we focus more on the present”.
Arsenal are understandably thought to be keen on securing his long-term services, but Ozil says isn’t thinking about committing his future just yet. He has also found the back of the net four times.
Last season Ozil’s performances were hampered by injury, but the German star is determined not to let that happen again.
Arsenal style of play is hinged on a mesmeric midfielder than can old on the ball and split opposing defence with eye-catching passes.
Much like last season’s 2-0 victory at City and an important Champions League win over Bayern Munich in October, the success on Monday was based on a professional, controlled and measured approach.
“That is what we are doing really well at the minute but that means a lot of concentration and work in training and everyone in the game is up for the challenge”.
It’s certainly encouraging to hear Arsenal are willing to be adaptable in pursuit of Premier League glory.
Arsenal have shown a willingness to be flexible in recent matches.
Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker believes Mesut Ozil will be the key in the club’s run for the Premier League title this season.
Indeed, there have been times in campaigns gone by when the Gunners have looked well placed to challenge, before fading away late on; with tough games to come away from home, it’s not something that’s out of the question yet.
“It is going to be hard and we need to stay concentrated”, Mertesacker said.
