Arsenal Fans Demand Ozil Starts After Backheel Assist In Friendly

It may only have been a friendly in Dubai, but Mesut Ozil still deserves a round of applause for a typically divine assist during this afternoon’s 3-2 victory over Al-Nasr.

Despite Shkodran Mustafi’s best efforts at handing the home side a victory, the Gunners triumphed in the Middle East thanks to goals from Carl Jenkinson, Alexandre Lacazette and youngster Tyreece John-Jules.

And it was the assist for Lacazette’s effort, from the back heel of Ozil, that caught the attention the most.


Let’s hope the German playmaker is given the chance to show his class more and more in the last couple of months of the season as the Gunners chase down a top four finish in the Premier League and victory in the Europa League.
