Arsenal extended their Premier League win streak to six games following their 3-2 win over Swansea City at the Emirates.
Mesut Ozil also happened to turn 28 on same day and ended up scoring, putting on an impressive display to help his side move into joint first place in the Premier League table alongside Manchester City.
Ozil now has three goals for the North London based outfit in seven Premier League games this season.
We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to Ozil’s display on social media.
In case you missed his birthday goal here it is from a fans-eye view from behind the goal. What a strike!
Unreal vine of the Mesut goal https://t.co/AmjVZCEA9l

Ozil urged his teammates to keep on fighting after he was taken off. As you can imagine it went down well with the Gunners faithful.
Loved it when before he got subbed, Ozil shouted at everyone "Hey, FIGHT!" 😍 pic.twitter.com/jNSyON4XzL

Well that settles that!
Chelsea keep piping up about Cesc and Özil's lack of assists. Cesc has started one game all year and they lost 3-0 and Ö bossed them LOL

We only wish there was a video clip of this!
Peak Arsenal hipster. Someone's playing "We've got Ozil" on a harmonica in Block 6.

Ozil joins one of two players to have scored on their birthday. Interestingly enough it was his Arsenal teammate Laurent Koscielny for was the other Premier League player to score on his big day this season.

You usually receive gifts on your birthday but being Ozil it would only be right for him to be the one providing the gifts.
Unreal mentality by Ozil. On his birthday, it's him who gifts the Arsenal fans.

Ozil celebrated his birthday with a goal and a late night party.
