A Mesut Ozil-inspired Arsenal beat Leicester City 3-1 at the Emirates on Monday evening, prompting the German to use a memorable phrase.
Arsenal beat Claude Puel’s Foxes to make it ten wins on the bounce for Unai Emery’s impressive side.
The creative midfielder who turned 30 a week ago gave a masterclass which left Arsenal fans hailing his performance – along with boss Unai Emery.
The talented playmaker scored one and had a hand in substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace which clinched the game after the Gunners had fallen behind to Ben Chilwell’s cross following a deflection off Hector Bellerin to wrong-foot Bernd Leno.
Ozil tweeted after the victory: “I think we played some sexy football tonight. Proud captain of this team and this club,’ before adding his trademark, “Ya Gunners Ya.”
