The turn of the year saw the return of Arsenals record breaking signing Mesut ozil from an injury that had kept him out for three months.Much of the buzz was where he going to fit in Arsene wngers squad considering the number of forwards at Wengers exposure.But since his return he has eastablished himself as a first team player and probably the best Arsenal player in the past one month.His flexibility in the midfield has been of great threat to the opposition and his partnership with great players like Santi carzola,Alexis sanchez,Theo Walcott,Thomas rocisky and Oliver giroud have given a lot of headache to many teams .

 Earlier in the season Arsene Wenger had tried to play Ozil in the wing to give way for Alexis sanchez,the switch however seemed not to suit Ozil .During the three month layoff Ozil was involved in alot gym work to improve on his physicality,which seem to have helped him much and can now cope with the physical EPL defenders.
