Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil insists he trusts manager Arsene Wenger to get the best out of his ability after struggling to light up the Premier League so far.

Ozil was the marquee signing for the Gunners 18 months ago when he joined for a fee of £42.5million from Real Madrid.

The Germany international impressed during his first season but his performances have come under some scrutiny this term.

The 26-year-old has been sidelined with a knee injury since seeing out 90 minutes of the 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in October.

Arsenal, who are priced at 31.00 to win the league, are expected to be able to welcome the playmaker back in January and Ozil is hoping to re-establish himself in the first team.

The former Los Blancos man believes that when he is passed fit Wenger is the right man to ensure he is at his best as the Gunners look to try and improve on their mixed start to the season.

Ozil said: “He [Wenger] knows what he wants and I know he can bring me a step forward; he trusts me in that way and I trust him, completely.

“For a team, it [a trophy] is the biggest thing to get and we got it but as a player, there are other things – being the best player in the world, other cups, the Champions League.

“For now, I am not making any plans for after my career. I am just really happy to be here.”
