Hector Bellerin urges Mesut Ozil to reproduce best form against Bayern
By Will Butcher
Hector Bellerin has called for Arsenal to produce the kind of football that saw Mesut Ozil score against Bayern Munich last season.
The Gunners faced Bayern in the group stage last season, beating the German champions 2-0 as well as losing 5-1 at the Allianz Arena in the reverse fixture.
Posting a video on his personal Twitter account, Bellerin is desperate to see the Gunners replicate the kind of form that saw Ozil strike during Arsenal’s 2-0 win in the group stages.
