Arsenal dismantled Tottenham in a 2-0 win on Saturday as they proved to everyone that they can still compete in the biggest games. Despite starring throughout the match, it has been reported that Mesut Ozil has been given permission to negotiate a January transfer away from Arsenal.
The Gunners were able to defy the odds as they beat Tottenham last Saturday. The 2-0 win was one that few saw coming, but from the way they played, it was entirely deserved. For a man, Arsenal outplayed their opponents, with the usually so devastating Spurs unable to get a foothold in the game.
Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez were more than enough to take all three points from the encounter, and it has set the London side up very well as they close in on the hectic festive period.
Arsene Wenger’s men are now just a single point behind Tottenham in fourth-place, and a consistent run of performances from the Gunners would see them at the very least keep pace with their arch-rivals.
One player that stood out on the day was Mesut Ozil, as he defied the critics to put in one of his best performances in an Arsenal shirt. However, it has been reported by Mundo Deportivo that the London side want to earn some money from the German, with a price of just under £20 million mentioned.
While this could prove to be yet more unconfirmed rumours, the growing swell of news around Ozil seems to almost always pertain to his apparently inevitable transfer away from Arsenal. While some fans may have welcomed his departure in recent weeks, they may be changing their minds after his outstanding performance against Spurs last Saturday.
