Arsenal And Liverpool Clash In Premier League Match
Ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Liverpool this weekend, the team’s captain, Laurent Koscielny, stated that Mesut Ozil is in “unstoppable” form.
The Arsenal midfielder has had an impressive season, having scored three goals and providing one assist in the Premier League.
Koscielny who has been away from the field due to injury, hopes Ozil will bring his A-game to the Emirates on Saturday.
“Mesut deserved all the plaudits he got after his performance against the Foxes,” the centre-back said.
“He was incredible. His goal bailed us out before the break and then his pass for Hector on our second goal is the best ball you will see all season.
“And he added an assist for Auba after a great dummy and understanding with [Alexandre] Lacazette.
“When Mesut is in this form, he is unstoppable and makes us win. He has extraordinary qualities.
“There are not many players like him in the world right now capable of producing a pass the like for Hector, beating four opposition players with just one ball.
“His display on that night will stay in people’s minds for a very long time. It is a case of ‘I was there when Ozil had that performance against Leicester.
“However, he needs to be at this level as much as possible this season. Great players are the ones playing at their best the whole season.”
Koscielny is focusing on his return to first-team action and has reunited with his team-mates in training.
“I am continuing my recovery and I am getting closer to a return,” he said.
“I don’t want to rush anything but it is a great feeling to take part in training sessions with the squad again.”
