The experienced coach described the Germany international as the invisible man due to his ability to see passes others can’t.
Harry Redknapp’s team of the week:
Asmir Begovic, Matteo Darmian, Vincent Kompany, Phil Jagielka, Alexksander Kolarov, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho, Jefferson Montero, David Silva, Mesut Özil, Sergio Ageuro
Redknapp included the caption, “Like the Invisible Man: he gets into places where no-one sees him coming,” when describing Özil’s performance this week.
The Germany international provided an assist to Olivier Giroud and maintained a passing accuracy of 98% during Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.
Özil is known for assist making ability and has setup a total of 24 goals for the Gunners since joining on a £42.5 million record breaking transfer fee in 2013.
Arsenal moved into 11th place on three points after two games following the win over Palace.
