Mesut Ozil gives Arsenal home win against Newcastle United

Arsenal news: Why Alexis Sanchez will definitely leave if Mesut Ozil does - Crooks

ARSENE WENGER says Mesut Ozil is playing at the peak of his powers - and believes the German wants to stay a Gunner.

Ozil's current deal expires at the end of this season, and there has been speculation that the 29-year-old could leave the Emirates Stadium for a reduced price in January rather than Arsenal risking him leaving on a free transfer next summer. "We are an offensive team and had plenty of chances, but as long as you are 1-0 up your opponent will always be up for a chance".

"I would had preferred it if we were more comfortable on the score line, but it was important we got the three points today".

"We gave them three points in the first game and we can't give them more points".

"Ozil's goal was a gem". So I'm pleased he took the gamble to finish and I'm happy as well that he scored a very important goal. That was a great goal.

"The game we played at Liverpool was probably the worst game we played all season", he said.

Talented left back Ainsley Maitland-Niles produced another fine performance for Arsenal and almost scored after a darting solo run, with Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere also coming close as the Gunners kept their rivals on the back foot.

Newcastle only came to life in the latter stages, with Perez failing to take advantage of two rare chances when he put a shot and then a header over the bar.

Özil ended Arsenal's poor results after he scored a superb goal against Newcastle minutes before half time.
