[su_quote cite=”Justin Timberlake Remix” url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gOHvDP_vCs“]He’s bringing sexy back, (yeah!)
Them other boys don’t know how to act (yeah)[/su_quote]
Özil played some scintillating football if I do say so myself.[su_divider top=”no” divider_color=”#e10115″ link_color=”#d00607″ size=”1″ margin=”10″]
I told you Leicester was going to counter and press. And for the first 30minutes, they did. However, our boys recovered from the mistake and made a comeback. This makes it 10 wins in a row for us and, it makes Mesut Özil (scoring 30 times) the highest scoring German in the English Premier League ahead of Jurgen Klinsmann (scoring 29 times) who played for the lot down the road.
Let’s take a minute to re-live Özil’s goal, assist and pre-assists.
The goal was nice. Taking advantage of the speed from Bellerin’s cross (who I might add recovered well from his mistake scoring an own goal from Ben Chilwell’s shot), he ushered the ball into the net with minimal effort.
It was the pre-assist (pass) to Bellerin for the second goal though, that caused the entire stadium to gasp in disbelief. How, in God’s name, did he see that space and accurately time Bellerin’s run at the same time? He bl**dy took three defenders out! I mean, who does that?
And then, did you see the flick before he ran in and made a cheeky feint to usher in his assist for the third goal? #Speechless
I think we played some sexy football tonight 😎💪🏼 Proud captain of this team and this club! © #YaGunnersYa ❤ #M1Ö @Arsenal pic.twitter.com/iPFGxViAes

I want to keep him at the club till he’s about 39 years old. Let him age like fine wine (like Pirlo) before he goes on to earn big bucks in China or the US.
I’m glad we have him and Auba because we’ve had some strikers in past history who wouldn’t/couldn’t bury the sort of chances Auba had. And no, I won’t name names, that’s why there’s a comments section, so let me know.
We face Crystal Palace next and they haven’t been playing so well. But that’s not our biggest test. Our biggest test will come November 3rd when we’ll face Liverpool. Our prayer should be that Tottenham causes an upset by drawing with or beating Manchester City. The game will be wide open then.
I know it’s too early at the start of the season to start thinking about title chances because, it’s tight in the top 6, I kid you not. Citeh aren’t going to run away with it like they did last season, not on our watch.
