Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has showered praises on Mesut Ozil for his role in Arsenals 3-1 win a against Leicester.

Ozil scored the equaliser and assisted Aubameyang as the Gunners came from a goal down to defeat the Foxes.

Bellerin also had big contributions in the game, providing the assist for Ozil to score after scoring an own-goal earlier.

Leicester had looked like they would end Arsenal’s nine match winning streak when Bellerin turned in Ben Chiwwll’s cross.

But the defender then turned provider when he found Ozil in the box after sleek counter-attacking move by the Gunners.

Aubameyang scored twice in 3 minutes to give Arsenal their 10th consecutive victory in all competitions.

The Spaniard who spoke with Arsenal’s website after the game said:

“Mesut is a player that always keeps giving his best and is always surprising everyone. He’s a player that we’re very grateful and very lucky to have.

“When the team play well with good football and he can find space he’s always a killer with his passes and finishes so for us to have a player like him in the team is very important.

“It’s always a blessing to have players like that but the work comes from the whole team, and it comes from the back, from the goalkeeper to the striker.

“We’re all one and, when you have players with such quality, it’s always that little bit easier.

“Mesut is a player that has been through a lot in his career. Through loads of ups and downs, but most of all he’s a born champion and he’s a player who has so many records in the world of football.

“So he’s a player that is an example for everyone. Everyone wants to have the success that he’s had on and off the pitch. So for us to have someone like him as a captain is really important.”
