Arsenal star Mesut Özil believes his side deserve to be in the FA Cup quarter-finals following their 2-0 win over Middlesbrough.
Özil shared an image from the game via his instagram account accompanied by the caption, “Well-deserved victory next round quarterfinals #YaGunnersYa #FACup #Arsenal #AFC #Gunners @arsenal.”
The 26-year-old started for Arsenal and was given a rating of 8.50 by Whoscored for his performance.
Özil has been in impressive form for the Gunners following his return from injury which forced him onto the sidelines for three months.
The Arsenal star has now scored three times and created two assists in his last five games in all competitions for Arsenal.
Özil was also part of the Arsenal side that won the FA Cup last season.
The World Cup winner has a total of four goals and five assists in 14 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season.
The Gunners are the reigning FA Cup champions and the cup is currently Arsenal’s most realistic chance at winning silverware this season.
