Ian Wright noticed something unusual of Mesut Ozil’s technique after he scored in 5-1 win

Mesut Ozil opened the score in Arsenal’s 5-1 Premier League midweek win against Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright, took a closer look at Ozil’s strike and noticed something rather unusual about his technique.

“He kicks down on to the ball. He bounces it on purpose. He did it against Huddersfield and he kicked down on to it against Bournemouth,” explained Wright.

“Instead of chipping it over a keeper he bounces it over him. You can see him telling everyone what he did [while celebrating]. It’s just such a brave finish for someone to do, it’s brilliant. It’s the Ozil.”
