It’s the eighth wonder of the world.
Mesut Ozil has had his ability doubted for much of this season but he’s determined to remind us exactly what he can do.
In a rare start he produced his now iconic party trick to give Arsenal the lead against Bournemouth.
We’re all familiar with the video of Ozil’s ‘bounce pass’ for Germany against Denmark, right?
The playmaker’s technique is such than he can intentionally jab the ball into the ground to elevate it past/over opponents.
Allow me to remind you of that very pass.
The moment of mind-bending, gravity-defying wizardry was written off by many as nothing more than a fluke.
So, to prove everyone wrong, he did it again.
Just to make sure we’re left in no doubt as to it’s validity, the German produced his party trick for a third time to give Arsenal an early lead against Bournemouth.
In typically effortless fashion, Ozil made the Emirates pitch do the bulk of the work to find the back of the net.
Arsenal’s No10 kicked the ball into the ground to loop it over a helpless Artur Boruc.
The goal is one that Gunners fans will have playing on repeat and use as ammo to fire at Unai Emery as to why he should be starting Ozil.
The enigmatic German might have his critics but there’s simply no doubting he’s one of Europe’s most technically gifted playmakers.
Ozil’s night got even better when he calmly found Henrikh Mkhitaryan to double Arsenal’s lead.
The German is playing his way into form at exactly the right time with a north London derby on the horizon.
Never change, Mesut.
