Alex Iwobi grateful for guidance from ‘world class’ Mesut Ozil

Wes Morgan is suspended for Leicester City after his red card against Everton on the last match day

Ozil was captain on Monday night and led from the front despite a hard summer with Germany.

The retired Germany global was handed the captain's armband for the visit of Leicester City at The Emirates on Monday night in their first game since the worldwide break.

The German produced one of his finest ever displays in an Arsenal shirt, having a part in all three of his side's goals after Hector Bellerin's own goal gave the Foxes the lead in the 31st minute.

A good run in the Arsenal box by City's Ben Chilwell forced Hector Bellerin into putting the ball in his own net to give the Foxes the lead but goals the German global and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang was enough to coast victory for the Gunners.

The Nigerian youngster pointed to Ozil's leadership as a big reason he has developed so well at Arsenal.

That's the view of former England and Everton winger Trevor Steven, who saw Ozil shine in Arsenal's win over Leicester on Monday.

"Being made captain on Monday was recognition from Emery that Ozil has embraced a more collective approach".

A strong magnitude 6.6 natural disaster has struck just off the west coast of Vancouver Island late Sunday evening. Reuters had initially reported the magnitude of the two earthquakes was respectively 6.7 and 7.

"I get the privilege to play with him every day", he said.

The Nigerian worldwide said that Ozil has been advising him since he was aged 17. He is a world-class player and he proved that again last night.

"Mesut is a player that always keeps giving his best and is always surprising everyone and he's a player that we're very grateful and very lucky to have", the Spanish full-back told Arsenal's website .

"Mesut will come across as laid back but he is helping everyone in a different way and he helps me a lot". "I think that is the difference between me last year and this year".

"I think we need to think about the next match, against Crystal Palace next Sunday, and also in another competition like the Europa League I think is very important for Thursday".

The former Germany global will be hoping that he can help Arsenal to extend their winning run to eight games against Crystal Palace at The Emirates on Sunday.
