You couldn’t have thought of a better way to celebrate Ozil’s 200th game for Arsenal than to see him score an absolutely amazing goal and help Arsenal to another three points, which in an away game is an even bigger bonus. The German’s response to the ridiculous rumours that there were problems between Emery and himself was perfect by showing that he has adapted to his tactics and contributed to another win.
And he made his thoughts clear after the game when he said: “I’m happy. The most important thing was to take the three points here,” he said. “Congratulations to the whole team on playing very well. I know that Newcastle, especially at home, are very good and aggressive, but we showed character, gained the three points and we’re happy now.
“I’ve said in the past that I’m very happy to play for Arsenal. The new coach knows what he wants, the team have accepted that and the whole team supports him.
“We have a good relationship with him and you can see that especially today as well. When we score, the whole team is happy, even the players who don’t play so many minutes.
“You see we are one team that wants to reach our goal. We are happy to take the three points.”
So the media are now going to have to stop trying to destabilise the team as it is obvious it’s all lies. Arsenal now have three wins in a row, and the important thing is they are fighting to the end and playing as a unit. Things can only get even better and as a united team we can only get better…
Onwards and Upwards!
