Ozil Arsenal 5

This is absolutely filthy from Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil!

One of the unwritten laws of football is no matter how much you dislike your opposition, if one of their players does some cheeky skill, then you have to applaud it. 

And that's exactly what this stunned Crystal Palace fan did when he saw Mesut Ozil pull of some very naughty touches to help keep the ball in play. Now the German is well known for being skilful, even if he does decide to go missing in the middle of games for Arsenal. 

However, this time Ozil showed off exactly what he's all about by plucking the ball out of the air as cool as you like and then doing a weird Cruyff turn thing while the ball was still in the air. It definitely caught our eye but the reaction of one Crystal Palace fan may well have topped the skill. 

We don't blame him for that reaction, it was far too naughty from Mesut. The German is often criticised for his Arsenal performances but Crystal Palace were unlucky that he decided to turn up at Selhurst Park for a change. He was brilliant on Sunday afternoon.
