Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Ozil's performance against Brighton

Ozil Arsenal 3

Arsenal defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2 on Sunday but what did Gunners fans make of Mesut Ozil's performance?

Arsenal avoided being on the wrong end of a FA Cup shock at the weekend when they overcame Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2 at the Amex Stadium.

The current holders went ahead after just two minutes when Theo Walcott scored before Mesut Ozil, who has recently returned from injury, doubled the Gunners’ advantage.

Chris O’Grady halved the deficit before the impressive Tomas Rosicky put Arsenal 3-1 up.

There was still time for Sam Baldock to score and give Arsenal some nervous moments late on but Arsene Wenger’s men ultimately triumphed.

Ozil had been side-lined for much of the campaign with a ruptured knee ligament injury but he returned to the goal-scoring trail on his first start for quite some time.

That followed a late cameo performance against Stoke City in the Premier League and Wenger will surely be hoping his club-record signing can now stay fit for the remainder of what looks like being a very exciting campaign for the North London club.
