Walcott: Nothing can keep Ozil down

Walcott: Nothing can keep Ozil down

Wenger is still yet to announce whether he will sign a new contract to remain as manager or leave at the end of the season.

"I feel for a few weeks now in training that he is really focused again and that comes out in the game", he added.

"Of course we are [in a relegation battle]".

"We are always praised more than we deserve it when it goes well and punished more than we deserve it when it hasn't gone well but that's our world". But the home side overcame a lackluster first half to reignite its challenge for a Champions League qualification place. It's the Premier League and that's why it's the best league in the world. "We have a game in hand on City". In February, former Gunners defender Martin Keown said "you don't know when he is coming or going" and labelled Ozil an "expensive luxury,"per James Restall for the Daily Mail". When they crashed out they had to play these players because of injuries.

But Ozil was considerably more effective on Wednesday following a decent display against Manchester City on Sunday, assisting Arsenal's second goal.

Mesut Ozil struggled mentally after Arsenal were dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, according to Arsene Wenger.

Walcott stated that Ozil is returning to form and that the goal will help his confidence. If you missed Ozil's goal, you can see it by clicking here.

"He has put his head down, worked hard in training and the rewards showed today, as simple as that". His side are on a run of six games without a win, the last four of which have ended in defeat, including Saturday's loss at relegation-threatened Hull.

"We're obviously disappointed with the defeat", he said.

Striker Andy Carroll (groin) and midfielder Michail Antonio (illness) are in doubt for Saturday but Bilic is optimistic he will get the win he needs. "One win will change everything for us, because three points at this stage of the season are massive". We need to find the spots where is really unsafe, maybe sometimes play a long ball that Alexis can run on to, rather than giving him a pass to feet, where he has to turn and face three or four of the opposition.
