Arsene Wenger: This is why Mesut Ozil is very important for Arsenal


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for his players after they registered their first Premier League win of the season.

The Gunners were inspired by a superb display from midfielder Mesut Ozil who missed the first game of the season against Liverpool.

The Frenchman also underlined the solid performance from defender Rob Holding who is expected to feature regularly this season.

"Especially in the first half [Ozil was very good]," Wenger said on Saturday.

"In the second half he dropped physically, but of course, we need him. I think what we've seen from him today is what we want from him, to give assists but he is going to score goals. So I am very happy that he scored today because that is what he is trying to add to his game.

"An outstanding performance [also from Rob Holding].

"I'm happy that you noticed that, because it's important that a player who comes from Bolton, comes to a club where he concedes four goals in the first game at home, he has to play under huge pressure at Leicester and today he performs the way he does.

"I think it's not easy and it shows some great potential and I am convinced that he will give a fight to all the centre backs."
