Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles has offered high praise for both Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey.
The Gunners duo were instrumental in Arsenal’s comfortable 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday.
Ramsey, who is Juventus-bound this summer, scored the opener, while Ozil’s magic saw him claim the Man of the Match award.
Having started four games in succession, it appears Ozil has finally won Unai Emery over.
Arsenal’s form has taken an upturn since Ozil’s regular run and Gooners will be pleased to have seen their side leapfrog Tottenham into third in the Premier League.
And Maitland-Niles believes both Ozil and Ramsey were excellent on Monday night.
‘Everyone loves Mesut and Aaron,’ said the England Under-21 international (via Metro).
‘They’re great with the ball at their feet and they can both run in behind as well. Mesut showed his physicality today and I think that was excellent from him. It was great work-rate from both of them.
‘It’s every team’s dream to play Champions League football. It’s the best European competition in the world.
‘To play against all the big teams would be fantastic and you get to test yourself fully.
‘That’s all we wanted to do, to go out there and win today’s game today. We’ve made one step closer to succeeding.’
