Sead Kolasinac Wasn't Even In The Picture When Mesut Ozil Made The Pass
There's vision. Then there's Mesut Ozil-vision.
The German returned to Arsenal's starting XI this afternoon, donning the captain's armband and he played a very influential role in their opening goal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Arsenal an early lead after Sead Kolasinac's superb ball into the box.
But Ozil's pass to the Bosnian needs to be talked about.
He pinged an exquisite pass through Burnley's back-line in stunning, stunning fashion.
Kolasinac wasn't even in the frame when Ozil made the pass.
That pass from Ozil was so good that Kolasinac wasn't even in shot. Took out six Burnley players with one ball #AFC pic.twitter.com/mfU67WBRd8

THAT IS WHY YOU PLAY OZIL, UNAI.
Naturally, his wizardry was the main talking point from the first-half.
OZIL PASS OF THE CENTURY OMGGGGGGGGG. AUBA SCORES. 1-0 ARSENAL.

Reminder of Mesut Ozil's class there with a pass that took about six Burnley players out of the game. An absolutely belting pre-assist.

I'm at the Emirates today and Emery looks to have got it spot on with Ozil. This game, with Burnley sitting deep, is perfect for him. Amazing pass in build up to Aubameyang goal. 1-0

Aubameyang makes it 1-0. Amazing pass from Ozil in the build-up and Kolasinac pulls it back for Auba to slot home.
