Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has a habit of nutmegging his teammates in training, and his latest victim was Matteo Guendouzi.
The Frenchman was playing piggy in the middle when the Gunners’ no.10 slotted the ball through his legs, triggering a fit of laughter from the rest of the team:
Welcome to the latest edition of Mesut Megs 🥜
Today's victim? It's @MatteoGuendouzi (sorry Matteo!) 😅

Fans are loving the fact that Ozil seems to be really enjoying his football at the moment:

The lads look like they are really enjoying each other’s company on and off the field, whatever Unai has been doing in training is definitely translating out there on the pitch. Keep it up lads#COYG

Considering there was talk that the German midfielder had a falling out with manager Unai Emery earlier this season, it seems he is now happier than he has ever been at the club.
The extra responsibility that the Gunners boss has given Ozil has certainly led to improved performances on the pitch. The best example of that was when he was given the captain’s armband against Leicester City last month.
The 30-year-old’s goal and assist helped the team to a 3-1 win, and he looks to be excelling after being given a leadership role.
