Ozil scored with a sumptuous volley as Arsenal laboured to a 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

On the football front, Ozil continues to be linked with a move away from the Emirates, with his current contract expiring next summer - Manchester United and Barcelona are supposedly interested in his services.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he is "confident" Mesut Ozil will sign a new contract at the club.

"You want nobody to leave and see where we stand on that".

Last season when Arsenal were going through a very hard patch, Arsene Wenger suddenly shifted to three at the back to bring extra defensive solidity to the team.

"I knew before the game that this is a tricky one because we play three games in six days and that we have not rotated a lot".

Ozil's victor on Saturday was a moment of class from a player who has divided opinion among the Arsenal fan base since his big-money move from Real Madrid in 2013.

But Wenger feels Ozil is now playing the best football he has seen from the World Cup victor since he moved to north London four years ago. Asked if this is the best run of form Ozil has shown since joining the club in 2013, Wenger told a news conference: "Yes".

"I think he takes responsibility and that's what you want from him". So I'm pleased he took the gamble to finish and I'm happy as well that he scored a very important goal. But what is most important today is the three points.

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

That is all very well, but were those two clean sheets more due to the fact that we were playing very weak teams that mostly just wanted to defend against us? We need to make sure this time we are ready.

"You could see he was as not as sharp as he is now which I think he benefits from".
