Mesut Ozil is smiling again at Arsenal as he marked his return with a stellar performance to inspire Arsenal to a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth.
Unai Emery’s men are fourth on the log and will want to keep things that way especially with Chelsea having a game in hand to catch up.
Ozil justified his inclusion in the team by netting inside four minutes and providing the pass for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to double the advantage.
Bournemouth reduced the tally by one through Lys Mousset 15 minutes before halftime.
That was not to shake the Gunners as second half goals from Laurent Koscielny, Aubameyang and Lacazette ensured a comfortable win to keep top 4 hopes alive.
