Unsurprisingly, there were wild celebrations at full-time. Mikel Arteta certainly could not hide his excitement on the touchline. And it felt like the kind of performance that could provide a pivotal moment in Arsenal’s season.
One former player who was watching on was Ozil. The former Germany international took to Twitter to express his delight at the result, with Saka receiving particular praise. Arsenal surely now have to be considered as genuine title contenders.
