Ozil Perfect Fit For Arsenal, Says Muller

Mesut Ozil is excelling at Arsenal because the playmaker “perfectly fits” the Gunners’ style of play, according to Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller.

After two mixed seasons in North London, Ozil has been in sublime form this term and boasts six assists in eight Premier League matches – the joint most with Manchester City’s David Silva.

The Germany international will come face to face with a number of his compatriots when Arsenal host Bayern in Tuesday’s crucial Champions League encounter and Muller is not surprised by the form of his international team-mate.

“Mesut is very lively,” Muller told Arsenal Player.

“His left foot is outstanding and he’s always got a great eye for a pass to a team-mate. His style of play fits perfectly to Arsenal’s game. That’s why he plays a good role there.”

 After defeats to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos in their opening two Champions League matches, Arsenal’s hopes of reaching the last-16 are hanging by a thread ahead of Bayern’s visit.

The Bavarians, meanwhile, have won both of their opening matches and a record nine straight Bundesliga since the start of the season.

Muller, however, is wary of the threat posed by Arsenal ahead of their trip to London, particularly with Ozil among the Gunners’ armoury.

“Mesut can hurt anyone, especially in London, where I see Arsenal as being a tick stronger than when they play away. We need to prevent Mesut from playing those dangerous passes in the final third.”
