Arsene Wenger eager for Arsenal to top Champions League group
Nov 02 2016 by Marjorie Miles
After being put clear by a Mohamed Elneny through ball, Ozil cheekily dinked it over the keeper before bamboozling two defenders and stroking the ball in to the back of the net. Granit Xhaka turned home a goal in the 20th minute and Olivier Giroud marked his first start of the season by heading home an equaliser shortly before the break.
Ozil's sublime goal took the focus away from some very bad defending by the visitors early on that resulted in them trailing 2-0 after just 15 minutes. He now has three goals in two games after his brace against Sunderland on Saturday, but this game gave Wenger little reason to stray from a recipe that has been so successful this season.
"I've hoped to come back in and I've worked hard in training to do so but I'm happy as long as the team are winning and I've seen we have good cohesion as a side". "It was good to be 2-2 at halftime".
Mesut Ozil scored the victor two minutes from time at the Natsionalen Stadion Vasil Levski, securing a spot in the last 16 for the Gunners for the 17th consecutive season. "I was delighted that we managed to level before half time".
"So it shows we have been quite consistent there".

The French international's all round play was solid considering he's been out for over six weeks and this was his first start of the season but Giroud once again popped up with a vital goal as he headed home the equaliser just before half time. That we could do it again this year. hopefully we can go further now. Let's maintain the quality of our results until the game against Paris St Germain. Jonathan Cafu slid in to turn home a free kick before Claudiu Keseru was left unmarked in front of goal to double the lead just three minutes later.
"We were so close to get a draw".
"You know, I would say the great players make the right decisions in the game situations they face". Arsenal is an excellent side and they punish mistakes.
Arsenal seemed comfortably in control in the early stages before Cafu struck against the run of play, scoring in the 12th minute following a free kick from Wanderson. "We are disappointed, but also proud".
