Mesut Ozil was devastating in front of goal with a second-half hat-trick as Arsenal surged to an easy 6-0 win over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Alexis Sanchez had opened the floodgates in the 12th minute before Walcott doubled their lead before half time.The avalanche of goals continued after the break as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain immediately got in on the scoring, before Ozil capped off a fine win with three cool finishes.
Olivier Giroud is close to returning after a month out but is there a risk he will upset the apple cart? An interesting aspect of his absence has been the effect on Mesut Ozil, who has been afforded more space higher up the pitch and licensed to attack goal more frequently.
His hat-trick on Wednesday night took him to six for the season, well on his way to beating his Arsenal record of eight. Aside from the finishing, his touch ahead of his first was rather special.
