Alex Iwobi has hailed the impact of Mesut Ozil on the Arsenal team, and hopes that after a difficult period the German can play more often.
The 30 year old made just his second start of 2019 in the 3-0 win over BATE Borisov, and was instrumental in a much more controlled attacking display from the Gunners.
In particular he linked up well and often with Iwobi on the left, something that wasn’t lost on the Nigerian international when he spoke after the game.
“We know what Mesut’s like, we see him in training every day,” he said. “He’s world class.
“You know we’ll create a lot of chances with him in the side so we just have to hope that we put our chances away and we’re able to score three goals from it, like today.
“So hopefully he continues to play. It’s about trying to create space and makes the right runs.
“I know if I make a run he’ll be able to find me because he’s got the vision to spot it, so I just have to make it easier and try to make a run so that he can play the ball for me.”
It’s clear from what he’s saying that the players have missed him, so let’s hope he can find some form between now and may?
