Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers to ever play the game, according to former Real Madrid team-mate Mesut Ozil.
"We are happy with this victory and we are improving but we also need to continue working individually and collectively to improve more things". Congratulations to the whole team, we played well.
On Ozil not playing for Germany benefitting Arsenal he added: "It's a new way for him".
During the encounter, Ozil ensured that Arsenal claimed maximum points against Newcastle after netting the match victor in the second half to see off the Rafa Benitez tutored-side.
"I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".
"But I am only thinking about the best performance for Thursday".
"But I do not want to compare myself with anybody".
However, he showed exactly what he's capable of when he replaced Matteo Guendouzi just after the restart.
However, Arsenal's opener came from a player whose place in the side is frequently disputed, with Xhaka firing a stunning free kick into the top corner of Martin Dubravka's net from 30 yards.
Ten minutes later Ozil doubled the lead by calmly slotting home after a spell of prolonged pressure in and around the box as Emery's side took charge. I always want to control the game, give assists and help my team.
But maybe in the second half we needed a little more balance on the pitch with the positioning. We want to give them confidence and also push them.
But England manager Gareth Southgate would have been equally frustrated watching two worldwide hopefuls at St James' Park, as midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was an unused substitute after his recent injury layoff, while center-back Jamaal Lascelles failed to reappear for the second half after sustaining a thigh problem. We didn't concede the transition as easy. "The second goal finished the match and the result".
"People always ask me about what it was like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and all I can say is that I've never seen a person like him", Ozil wrote.
