The German playmaker scored his first goal for the north London club since his deadline day move from Real Madrid when he expertly fired home a half-volley from near the penalty spot in the eighth minute.
Ozil then turned provider when he played a cut-back pass for Olivier Giroud to slam home in the 15th minute, prompting plenty of adulation from Wenger.
"First half, absolutely amazing, fantastic. Everything was in there - collective skill, individual skill, finishing, all that you dream to see," he told Sky Sports.
"When it takes too long to score it is always on your mind a little bit, so he got rid of that."
