Arsenal fans are delighted for playmaker Mesut Ozil after he scored a wonderful hat-trick against Ludogorets Razgrad, the first of his professional career.
The Germany international put the Bulgarian side’s defence to the sword in the second half, as the Gunners completed an impressive 6-0 rout over their Group A rivals.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez also chipped in for the North London giants, as they go top of their group, leapfrogging Paris Saint-Germain.

New signing Lucas Perez continued to impress again after signing from Deportivo La Coruna, by supplying Ozil with assists for his final two goals.
Arsenal fans were ecstatic on Twitter to see the former Real Madrid playmaker score the hat-trick, with some fans shocked that it was Ozil scoring rather than laying on goals for his teammates.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
My happiness will never be as much as right now, watching Ozil leave with a match ball.
