- Walcott has explained Ozil’s resurgence in recent games has been due to hardwork
- The English winger says the German has been working so hard to get back to his best
- Ozil scored the first goal as Arsenal won 3 - 0 against West Ham on Wednesday
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has described how Mesut Ozil worked hard to get back to his best.
The German international has been struggling with his form since their first leg against Bayern Munich in February. He played an important role in their 3-0 victory against West Ham on Wednesday.
The Gunners have also struggled in all competition as they have just won one of their last six Premier League appearances and are out of the Champions League.
They lost 5-1 home and away to Bayern Munich in March which sent them out of the UCL last 16 for the seventh year in a row.
Arsene Wenger has confessed that the 10-2 aggregate against Bayern Munich was humbling that got Ozil down, but Walcott says midfielder has been working so hard to get back to form.
Ozil inspired his side to their first league victory in six games as he scored the first goal in their 3-0 thumping against West Ham.
Walcott feels not only his goal gave him confidence but the player has already been working so hard on his form to get back to his best.
"I wouldn’t just say the goals (helped his confidence), you could see it was slowly starting to come back," the England international told Arsenal’s official site.
He added: "Goals always breed confidence in players but Mesut is a fantastic player.
"He has played for Real Madrid, he is a World Cup winner and has been through a lot of ups and downs so there is nothing he can’t come back from".
Arsenal's win against West Ham moved them back to 5th position with four points adrift 4th placed Manchester City as they face Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park on Monday to continue their Top 4 struggle.
