The German midfielder fired home Arsenal’s opener with what appeared to be a chip at first glance.
Mesut Ozil opened the scoring in just the fourth minute for Arsenal in their 5-1 demolition of Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
The German midfielder fired home with what appeared to be a chip at first glance, beating Artur Boruc all ends up in the Cherries’ goal.
But Ian Wright, who was providing analysis on Match of the Day, took a closer look at Ozil’s strike and noticed something rather unusual about his technique.
“He kicks down on to the ball. He bounces it on purpose. He did it against Huddersfield and he kicked down on to it against Bournemouth,” explained Wright.
“Instead of chipping it over a keeper he bounces it over him.”
Ozil didn’t stop there either as he apparently wanted those inside the Emirates to know how he scored the goal.
Wright added: “You can see him telling everyone what he did [while celebrating]. It’s just such a brave finish for someone to do, it’s brilliant. It’s the Ozil.”
