Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 in the Premier League on Monday night.

Arsenal record signing Mesut Ozil had a short message for his teammates after their win against West Ham.

Saluting their victory, which saw goals from Lukas Podolski (2) and Olivier Giroud, the German international urged the club to keep pushing in their bid to qualify for the Champions League.

The Gunners sit fourth in the Premier League at present, but Everton have played a game less and have a game in hand, to be played against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

Ozil's message is that he wants the club to stay in the race for fourth spot, ahead of his impending return.

The club conceded first against West Ham, but pegged them back just minutes later, to go in level at half-time, a goal Hammers manager Sam Allardyce admitted after the game was key to the result.

Ozil trained for the first time since his hamstring injury on Monday, and has been tipped to make a return at the weekend away to Hull City.

That timing could not be better, with Arsenal needing fresh legs to keep the impetus up until the end of the campaign.
