Ozil Even Better

Mesut Ozil is yet to reach his peak and still has more to offer Arsenal and Germany, says Gunners colleague Per Mertesacker.

Ozil set up three goals in a 4-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final, before being rested against Southampton last time out.

The 29-year-old should now be fully fresh for a return date with CSKA and is being backed to take his game to even greater heights, with fellow countryman Mertesacker saying: “Often it’s Mesut who is the creator and on Thursday he showed how lethal he can be in the final third.

“He has that eye, that vision. It’s up to us to put him into the best possible position to be able to have maximum influence.

“There’s still more to come from Mesut, as I’ve always said.

“There is so much potential there but he still has more to give. He was heavily involved in all four goals against CSKA and we need him to be as valuable as that in every single game.”
