It took just ten minutes for Mesut Ozil to make his first real contribution in an Arsenal shirt, and what a great start to his Gunners career it was.

The ball was fed to the German international down the left and with an exquisite first touch he took the looping pass in and then played a perfectly weighted ball to an onrushing Olivier Giroud, all the Frenchman had to do was sweep the ball home confidently from 12 yards out.

It was the French internationals fifth goal in six games this season.

Now you can see why the Gunners broke the bank to bring in the former Real Madrid star.
