Wenger happy Ozil on Arsenal scoresheet

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted to see Mesut Ozil on the scoresheet in their 4-1 FA Cup win over Everton.

Wenger reckons Ozil answered his critics in the best way possible, the £42.5million former Real Madrid man scoring a much-needed first goal since early December.

"I hope that will encourage him," the Frenchman said. "What I liked with him is that physically he looked regenerated, having more power in his runs.

"As well what I liked, he did a lot of dirty work for a player like him - that means he tracked back in the first half, especially on the counter-attack. He came back with long runs and, when he behaves like that, of course you have a better chance to win the game."
