A stroll in Drayton Park, Mind the Gap, there are so many possible headlines but homage to Özil seemed the most appropriate. The maestro conducted the orchestra from start to finish; his silky skills being just that bit more in focus when so easily being able to compare his recent absence against Burnley.
Arsenal hit the ground running scoring within five minutes with a superb left footed effort from Lacazette the only down side was that Arsenal changed from high alert to casual cruise mode and proceeded to make hard work of things up till half time.
Lacazette was swapped for Giroud after the break I can only hope this was done for rest reasons ahead of the United game. Still, Giroud was the man that opened the flood gates with a trade mark, near post effort delivered to him from Mesut of course.
Gushing moi? I have only just started, I now get to the Ozil goal, I should just do a long purr sound, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Sanchez, Ramsey and Giroud got on the score sheet with the latter getting a second but where was I, oh yes, back to Özil and Mesut gets my MOTM.
We’re ready for you Jose.
