The German midfielder set up Gabriel for his first Arsenal goal in the 27th minute before Ozil doubled the lead after the break from a slick one-two with Olivier Giroud, Sport24 reported.

The match also saw goalkeeper Petr Cech set a new clean sheet record in the Premier League by overtaking David James record of 169.

Arsenal will stay on top if former league leaders Leicester fail to claim a win over fourth-placed Manchester City on Tuesday.
