“We imposed our quality on the game and stuck to our game plan and it was good to see the young players do well today as well.

“I am very proud of [Joe] Willock and Eddie [Nketiah] because Eddie had three good chances to score and Willock scored two.

Mesut Ozil has congratulated his Arsenal team-mates after their 2-0 win against Chelsea, despite being left out again by manager Unai Emery, uniquesports reports.

The German has not featured for the Gunners since a 1-1 draw with Brighton on Boxing Day and was an unused substitute as goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny gave the Gunners a vital win against their top four rivals.

“Congratulations to the whole team tonight.
