Ozil turned provider later in the first half as Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled the Gunners’ advantage.
The deficit was halved after a defensive error gave Lys Mousset the opportunity to score before the halftime break.
Normal order was resumed in the second 45 as the Gunners ran wild. Goals from Laurent Koscielny, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a freekick from substitute Alexandre Lacazette helped make the points safe.
Arsenal fans can certainly look forward to Saturday’s North London Derby after such a dominant win.
