After an awful team and referee performances on Boxing Day, which I declined writing a ratings blog, it was back to business as usual with Mesut Ozil pulling all the strings in a convincing 2 -0 victory against the on form Bournemouth side.
It was a good decision from Arsene Wenger to rest some players although I was sceptic about changing 2 from the defence at first but I am glad to be wrong for once as Gabriel and Gibbs had very good games. I was pleasantly surprised with the mature performance of Chambers in the all-important defensive midfield position.
We could have won this game with a bigger margin had our forwards made the most of the openings Majestic Mesut created for them. If there is a time to buy Mesut Ozil Shirt this is it! Personalised Arsenal home shirts have great choices. I would really like to see the faces of those people so unjustifiably criticised Ozil and watch them eat their deserved humble pie.
