The North London based side recorded a 3-1 victory moving them up into second place in the standings. Both Manchester United and City dropped points yesterday in the league.
Ozil received a rating of 8.5 from WhoScored after making five key passes and taking 122 touches on the ball during the game.
The 27-year-old has been in great form for Arsenal so good in fact that even players on rival teams have had to admit just how impressive he has been.
“It’s a joke how good he is.”
Arsenal have 30 points after 15 games and take on Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League next week.
